I think so, just downloaded it today, Help > About says CHIRP 0.1.11

Not a problem... I just need some patience

How do I do that? I'm using the KDE 4.6 GUI, not the command line, to
invoke the program. I have both user and root terminals open, but
nothing shows there, /var/log/messages shows nothing and dmesg shows
nothing...

Right after dinner!

Hope you are not in the path of the storm. We are in Newport RI, just a

73, Andy
