CQRLOG on Porteus Linux


I have download the cqrlog_1.9.0_i386.tar.gz Package and unpack it under Porteus Linux. Porteus Linux is a portable Linux Distribution which is based on Slackware Linux. I have tested Porteus with KDE and MATE and I think it is a good choice.

When I start CQRLOG I want to connect to a SQL-Server on a RaspberryPi (not mariaDB) I get an error with the message that the libmysqlclient.so ... is not installed. In Porteus Linux this package is not available in the package manager, so I have installed the complete mariaDB package and now CQRLOG works.

Was this a good choice, or have I to expect any problems with this solution (CQRLOG and mariaDB) ?

Should I install mariaDB on the RaspberryPi too ? Or is a mixed mode possible ?

In the next time I want to test the installation of the Hamlib libraries on Porteus for the connect to the transveiver.

Many thanks for your help !

Hi Marcus,

as far as I know CQRLOG should work with MySQL and MariaDB without any problem. It doesn't use anything that should be related only to MariaDB or MySQL.
