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

TCL_LIBRARY=/usr/tcl/library TK_LIBRARY=/usr/tk/library /usr/bin/pd-gui

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?
