After setting up a couple of Allstar nodes, I'm building an IRLP node.  (not my choice, but there are some repeaters in other states I want to get to that only do IRLP…)  I'm surprised how painful the IRLP hardware setup is... then I find out the IRLP board doesn't even deal with the RX/TX audio.  You need a sound card for that!   I'm spoiled by the URI and Allstar now.

Does anybody know if I can install and run the IRLP software on the same Centos distro that Allstar is running on?
Or should I just use a separate computer for IRLP?

It was like throwing gasoline on the campfire,everyone saw the effect. No more "Peeking/Poking" that LPT1 port (that no machine after 2006 has)

Maybe Kent/W7AOR will again host something like this in Las Vegas (as it's a fun place to visit).Vegas is NOT a easy drive for Central California, but some can find deeply discounted airfare to/from Vegas. Food for thought.....
