Re: Anyone running a PREDICT server I can testaccess with?



That was it.

Because it was missing those two files, it just couldn't do anything
which caused the closers and crashes.

I can't explain it WHY those two files would not be included but it
seems to the way things are done when setting up for the repositories.

Thanks,
James W8ISS

Toss them in your ~/.predict directory, and see if that helps.  We're on different versions, but hopefully they didn't change much.

I cd to the directory where the program is (where it was compiled), and run it from there.  The TLE and QTH files are in ~/.predict, which, of course, I have r/w access to (mode 755).  The files themselves are 644.  If I recall, everything was done from my own account, not root.
