Thanks for all the help, I think I've got them all, but still no joy, I'm
afraid. Maybe I've missed something obvious, but I still seg-fault all the
time. I wonder if some kind soul out there would take the time to test on
a RH6 box (with egcs and libstdc++) whether the Wavelet compression
package available at
http://www.cs.dartmouth.edu/~gdavis/wavelet/wavelet.html will compile on
your machine, or whether it's just mine. I understand if everyone has
something better to do :) I'd just like either third-party confirmation
that it's not me being a schmuck, or proof that I am :)
Thanks a lot, if you get the time, and never mind if you don't. By the
way, are RedHat 5.* and RedHat 6.* not executable incompatible, or is it
just me again? If so, why? And why was gcc dropped from redhat in 6.0?
Anyway, thanks for everything everyone,
