I haven't seen any SETI signal analysis software for Linux, but I do know
that there is a
lot of Radio Astronomy software already written for it. (In fact,
according to some of the
websites offering R.A. s/w, Linux is exceptionally good for this kind of
work.)

I would suggest looking up Radio Astronomy s/w for Linux and seeing what
can be
easily adapted to SETI uses, as I would expect at least some of the
functionality to be
the same.

I'd start by looking for AIPS' website, whether that would be usable or
not - surfing
the links off their pages led me to find quite a considerable number of
other Linux
Radio Astronomy packages, most including sources. You might easily find
something
adaptable.
