	Ok thanks! <g>  It REALLY helps!

	What are you using?  One of the main reasons I installed Linux was to
try pd.  I don't really care what distribution I use, although RedHat
*is* downloaded and installed and working nicely on my system.

	Would I have a simular problem with the .tar.gz package?  I've managed
to get a few of those installed.

tried that.. it installs the rpm, but if queried via rpm -qlp xxxx.rpm
it replies that pdxxxxx.rpm is not installed.

If I try to start pd anyways I get:

Pd version 0.23
compiled Sun Oct 18 21:18:41 CEST 1998
port 5400
TCL_LIBRARY=/usr/tcl/library TK_LIBRARY=/usr/tk/library /usr/bin/pd-gui
5400 /usr/bin/pd-gui: error in loading shared libraries cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'd give it a shot??

Could I not just find those libraries and install them? Or is that just
as complicated as a re-compile?
