Robotd for Super Scout robots

This program acts as a server for Nomad Super Scout robots to Nomadic's Host Development environment.  The latest release is version 1.3.0.  The RPM distribution was built against glibc-2.1 and will not install on robots running earlier versions, which includes robots running versions of RedHat Linux earlier than 6.0.   See below for upgrade instructions.  If you do not wish to upgrade your robot, you may download the source code tarball and compile it for your distribution.




Older releases of Scout software can be found here.
