All,

Linux Fedora RPMs for the latest chirp-daily build are now available in 
the KK7DS Ham-Apps yum repository.

To add the repository as a software source, please follow these 
instructions:
http://www.d-rats.com/component/content/article/30-d-rats-yum-repository/

I know it says d-rats, the chirp files are in the same repository

After setting up the repository, open the "Add/Remove Software" tool and 
go to "software sources" under the system menu. Make sure the "KK7DS Ham 
Apps Beta Software" line is checked (enabled).

For some reason, the Fedora package manager likes the beta versions 
better that the daily builds, so you may not see the daily release in 
the list the first time you update. If you don't see it, open a terminal 
window and enter:
yum update chirp-daily_09172011

Or, If you are running Fedora fc13 or earlier, enter:
yum update chirp-daily_09172011-1.fc13

That should install the latest daily build.

Happy Testing!
