Jarmo: If you need the "latest and greatest" stuff, to run the ham
radio software, this may not be the best distro for you. This is an
Enterprise distro, which rarely,  if ever, has the "latest and
greatest". If you break it, you get to keep the pieces. Read  the
information on the CentOS Wiki, about why not to do what you did and
how to configure the priorities plugin.   73,  Lanny
