Part VI: Appendixes > Installation Directions and "Gotchas"

E.3. Installation Directions and "Gotchas"

The pilot-link package is distributed under the GNU Public License as source code "tarred and zipped" (.tar.gz) in a single file. After you download the file from the Web—or copy it from this book's CD-ROM—the file is unzipped and extracted into a directory called /pilot-link-0.9.1 (or whatever the current version number is). You must now compile the source code files by first running configure and then make.

The programs then rely on two environment variables being set: PILOTPORT and PILOTRATE. If you don't set these variables, PILOTPORT, the serial port with which to connect, will default to /dev/pilot, and PILOTRATE, the speed of your PC's serial port, will default to 9600 bps. You can also override PILOTPORT's default by explicitly specifying the serial port on the command line.
