under debian predict runs setup like it should then terminates never getting
to the multi satelite screen.  on running it again it starts over in setting
up the qth, even though ~/.predict/predict.qth is present.

just fixed the problem:

the following 3 files seem to need to be present for predict to run:


to run as a server /etc/ services must have port 1210/udp assigned to

my osx install also now runs the predict server.  osx assigns aborher
service to port 1210 by default.

noww both work.
