[chirp_users] Yaesu FT-60 upload fails but download works

As documented in my original post, the OS is LINUX MINT 12 -- not Ubuntu.

If the directions on the webpage that says how to get the daily build 
are incorrect, shouldn't they be updated?

The DB9 serial cable was purchased from Yaesu and is specifically made 
for this radio.  This cable worked fine when programming the FT-60 using 
the same laptop, with Windows XP Professional and the 3rd party 
programming software supplied by Yaesu.  The cable and rig have not 
changed in any way.  I don't suspect any fault with the cable.

I will try the real daily build when I find the energy.
