I'm trying to install FUPPES & am having issues configuring the .cfg file. I have very limited Linux file editing experience....Does anyone have any experience with fuppes? If so, what do I ned to edit in the fuppes.cfg file? I can find no instructions or examples online.  Any help will be appreciated.

Did you try following the instructions on http://fuppes.ulrich-voelkel.de/documentation/installation/linux/?
You shouldn't need to edit anything.

I tried it, and it seemed to build all right. It only uses whatever libraries you have installed (not very many in my case)
19:02:30$ cd /usr/src
22:40:11$ tar -xf /usr/gz/fuppes-0.660.tar.gz 
22:40:26$ cd fuppes-0.660/
22:40:39$ ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/ginstall -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /usr/bin/mkdir -p

in the line of code:


Do I need to remove the eth0 & replace it with the IP address of the server fuppes is installed on? Then do I inistiate a rebuild of the database?

I posted a response to the above - looks like EE lost it (!)
Leave eth0 - it is the name of an interface, not an IP address. Except you might want to change it to a different interface name, say eth1 or ppp0. eth0 is typically correct though, unless your system is some kind of a router.
