What tracking software?  I use two programs.  For casual viewing of what is 
going on I run mtrack, which gives me a nice view of where the satellites 
are across the planet, pass predictions, and the ground visibility circle.  
For actual tracking, I have a copy of predict, which I have modified to 
drive my homebrew Az/El rotor controller.  The PC is running SuSE 10.0, but 
I expect both will run on any Linux distro and PC.

Good morning all,

Wonderful inspiring view of ISS and Atlantis from this QTH last night.
The neighbors are still talking about it and want to bring friends for
an ISS party tonight!

To the question...

What prediction program are folks using under Linux. I'm using Ubuntu on
a pretty standard 800MHz Celeron with 256 M of memory.
