Hi Bill,

AFAIK you have to use the kernel interface. I seem to recall Henk 
talking about the modular nature of Linux in this regard (so no need to 
reinvent the wheel).

This from the User's Manual .... In LINUX, DIGI_NED users the kernel 
interface; anything connected to this should work.

The advantage, of course, of using the kernel interface is that should 
you add other applications, they can share the same TNC's, modems, etc. 
Another advantage is that pipes (psuedo-tty ports) can be set up to 
permit different applications on the same machine to talk with each 
other without the need for real tty ports.

If you're concerned about compiling ax25 apps, tools and libs, Bernard, 
F6BVP, has a step-by-step HOWTO. He even has pre-compiled versions. Take 
a look here http://rose.fpac.free.fr/MINI-HOWTO/
