I am running ax25 utils/FBB using KUbuntu and have
absolutely no problems with it. All of the "pty/tty"
are found (saves a lot of headache), and to make it
even more simplier, the "deb" files are available from
the respositories that make it straightforward to edit
for my use and then execute.
I tried Fedora Core 2 back a while ago, and I never
really got it working with ax25 utils/FBB and ran into
the exact problem, "how to create the pty/tty pairs"
that ax25 utils/FBB use. You can create them manually
(even doing that, I had further complications rise
after that), but after restart, they will be deleted
by udev (it is in all releases after Core 1) by
I think you could create a rule to have them created
upon boot time, but I am not too sure of that. For
some reason, SUSE, K/Ubuntu, Mandrake, and other
distributions already have all the pairs created
automatically and are ready to use. So, it is another
possibly of the solution being in the kernel where
The simple solution is to try another distribution
(that is what I did), or try to find the solution in
the kernel and/or try creating udev rules for it.
