Yes. The best links for Linux ham radio software IMHO are here:
http://radio.linux.org.au/

There are a number of PSK31 applications listed there, but it is unlikely you will find VL packages for any, although most Slackware packages, if you can find them, will probably work. If not, you will have to compile them yourself, but I have done it quite a few times without any problems. Let me know if you need more assistance....

Thank you Larry,
I've been trying to compile Fldigi  used that in another distro. but so far have been unsuccessful in V.L. 
when I do the make i get this error.

Failed command was:
    g++ -Isrc -Isrc/include -Isrc/irrxml -DNDEBUG -DUSE_TLS=1 -DPORTAUDIO -pipe -Wno-uninitialized -Wno-deprecated -O2 -ffast-math -fno-rtti -fexceptions -finline-functions -O2 -march=i586 -mtune=i686   -c src/cw_rtty/cw.cxx -o Objects/cw.o
make: *** [Objects/cw.o] Error 1

Any suggestions?

Dave : that seems to me as though make cannot find the object file in the directory "Objects" (/Objects/cw.o). Check to see whether the uncompressed directory structure is correct. If it is there and that file is valid and not empty then all I can suggest is that you run ./configure --help and see if there is some switch you can set to force it to look in the right directory.

EDIT (NB)!: I just read this at the fldigi download page:
You will need to have hamlib and fltk compiled and installed before compiling & installing the fldigi program.

Do you have fltk and hamlib installed? If not, that might be your problem. Many ham radio software progs require hamlib. Both fltk and hamlib are already packaged for VL and you can install them from our repository with gslapt.
