Sorry to have taken so long to reply. Had some issues come up that
required my attention so couldn't spend any time on the computer...

I don't "install" Chirp. I use this wget command from a directory named
chirp - changing the date to match the latest daily build:

wget https://trac.chirp.danplanet.com/chirp_daily/LATEST/chirp-daily-20200409.tar.gz

Then I un-tar the file and run the script file chirpw.

I've done this for several years in Fedora. Think I'll just wait for
F32 to be officially released, then get serious about solving the
problem (if it still exists). I have another machine available if I
need to run Chrip.

Thanks for the help.

Fred, KL7FE
