# Set the Sticky Bit on /opt so we won't have to install as root:

root@raspberrypi:~# chmod 1777 /opt/

Create the svxlink user:

root@raspberrypi:~# useradd --create-home svxlink

Fetch the svxlink distribution and build it:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo su - svxlink
svxlink@raspberrypi:~ $
svxlink@raspberrypi:~ $ git clone https://github.com/sm0svx/svxlink.git
