eeeham: Hamradio Applications on the eeepc

I have now created a web space on my site dedicated to ham radio applications on the eeepc. You can access it by clicking on eeeham in the subject field of this post. At this point only a WIP, but I will update is as I make progress.

The idea is to have a set of Linux ham radio applications built on a host computer and packaged and configured so that they can be run off an SD or USB disk on the eeepc. User data related to the applications shall be stored on the same disk. I think this is a good approach since it will keep the eeepc system disk clean of my experiments.

To begin with I am focusing on simply making a few applications work on the eeepc and distribute them as a .tgz or similar package. The end user can then simply unpack it on the disk, plug the disk into the eeepc and run the apps. Advanced users can create shortcuts on the desktop and/or the icewm start menu (provided that it has been enabled).

Stay tuned for updates!
