Hi Donald,

I don't have Slack unfortunately. I assume uninstalling and then reinstalling FRR, but this time in the correct location, would help; however, I can't find in the Installation guide (docs.frrouting.org/en/latest/installation.html) where I should install FRR. Where should I install it?

Best regards,
Ian

Ian -

Can you join us in our slack?  Goto https://frrouting.org and click on the slack link for a self-invite.  I suspect there are more than a few things wrong and it might be a faster way to communicate and work through the issues.
