It is not enough to set the permissions on /root/.predict. I assume that 
you run Predict as an 'ordinary' user and in that case you will also 
have to give that user access permissions on /root (chmod o+x /root). I 
don't like this, since it is a security risk.

What I have done is this: I setup Predict to run under my ordinary user 
account, meaning that the .predict directory will be 
/home/bent/.predict. I sometimes also run predict as root and in order 
not to have two sets of predict data, I create links in /root/.predict 
to /home/bent/.predict, e.g.: ln -s /home/bent/.predict/predict.qth  
/root/.predict/predict.qth.

I hope this helps.
