Your quite welcome. Glad I could help.mdwatts: you fixed my problem! I had to go
Thanx! ;D david in san diego
That's what I figured your problem was.
If you have a rpm based distro, you can sometimes build a binary rpm out of a tar.gz package. It doesn't always work. If compiling from source (tar.gz) fails, then building a rpm package from the tar.gz will also fail.
rpm -tb packagename-#.#.#.tar.gz
If successful, the resulting binary rpm will be in /usr/src/<your distro>/RPMS/i386
