How to find out if AX25 is part of my Kernel

Hi, how do I find out if the AX25 protocols (?) are part of my kernel. I had a friend use Midnight something the other day. I am running Deb 3.1 from a FTP install using 2.4 (?) kernel.

Also, I installed XASTIR and it does not appear in my menu. Any ideas.

You have to figure out where is the kernel config.

It may be compiled into kernel as /proc/config.gz. In this case:

zcat /proc/config.gz |grep AX25
Usually sarge has /boot/config... to store configuration:
grep AX25 /boot/config-2.6.7-xtops5 
I am not completely sure if AX25 kernel config options is exactly what you mean.

AX-25 Protocols

AX.25 is a network protocol that is used for wireless packet networks. Generally when you want to use a network protocol, you require two things:

* Operating System Support: Linux has had AX.25, Net/ROM and ROSE support for some time now.
* Utilities: These manipulate or communicate with the operating system to either setup things or use the protocol.

The set of packages fit the second requirement. The packages have been split into three to make support and development easier.

Hope this helps.
