Well, you inspired me to dig into finding out how to set up a yum repository.
The result is a yum repository at http://nj8j.benshome.net/ currently
containing rpms for tqsllib, TrustedQSL, xlog and xdx for FC4.  I would have
put gmfsk up, but I run into an error message building it on my FC4 machine.

Well, if your web page is a yum repository then tomorrow I can just type # yum install xlog and it would look at all the repository's and come to yours and get me the RPM? Actually yum would insist on sending me hamlib which I got from somewhere yesterday.

As I indicate on the front page, you can set up you FC4 machine to retrieve
packages from this repository by running

rpm -i http://nj8j.benshome.net/nj8j-release-1.0.0-1.fc4.noarch.rpm

as root.  This installs nj8j.repo in /etc/yum.repos.d/ and my gpg key in

Why would I need to do what you have above? I didn't do any of that when I got fftw, hamlib and other RPM's.

If there's interest, I'd like to get more packages on it so we'll have a
standard place to get FC4 (and FC5, etc) ham radio packages.

That will be fine Ben but I wanted the xlog and gmfsk that I made today to be available to anyone who uses yum.
