Building qtel (Echolink client) under Fedora Linux

With both my previous bad experience building qtel (the Linux EchoLink client) and recent discussions on a forum around similar difficulties – I thought I’d identify, resolve and document the issues.

I’m not sure what’s changed but the process is now very simple (Fedora 28):-

git clone
cd svxlink/
cd src
sudo dnf install cmake libsigc++20-devel qt-devel popt-devel libgcrypt-devel gsm-devel tcl-devel
cmake .

Depending on libs already installed, additional packages may be required – as indicated by failures during the ‘cmake’ stage.
