Strength to your arm! Please give all the beginnerish hints you can think
of when you get it to run -- and announce triumph here! I want VA & TN,
and prefer both DeLorme and especially Garmin; but I've never yet managed
to get any topo map to run on any linux -- and it's the one thing I miss,
especially for the tie-ins with my GPS. I tried one of the commercial
packages, having heard erroneous scuttlebutt to the effect that it had
been done -- and got no effective help from the vendor, let alone Garmin ...
