Well, there are big problems on RedHat :

1) I don't know how to install postgresql nor mysql development packages. 
Their graphical package manager is dummy.

2) The standard system libraries are not the same than on -all- other distros. 
For example, I need to add "-lgcc_s" to linker options.

3) The compilation (without the database component) succeeds, but every gambas 
program crashes on exit. I don't know why !

4) See http://www.mosfet.org. He don't want to support redhat anymore ! I know 
he's a bit excessive :-)

I'm trying to do my best with my own redhat system, but for now, I must admit 
that I can't solve all these problems :-(. So any help from experimented 
redhat users is welcomed !
