Thank you, I got aprsd running thanks to you. I didn't realize the aprsd 
project was moved to sourceforge.org or that there was a new version 
available. The installation and start procedure has changed a lot.

The doc directory has old documentation. In fact, it gives incorrect 
information. Perhaps you can answer these two questions.

How are you "starting" aprsd. In the past I ran it as a daemom process 
starting it as a "service" automatically on power up. The new syntax is 
aprsd -d. Did you put yours in "rc.local" to start it upon power up?

Is there a standard directory location for aprsd. The install script put 
the binary in /usr/local/bin by default. I saw no documentation where to 
put it after the compile. The old aprsd put everything in /home/aprsd2.
