Hot off the presses, I've made a new systemperl for RedHat 7.3 systems.


wget http://install.loncapa.org/resources/LON-CAPA-systemperl-3.8-rh7.i386.rpm

rpm -e `rpm -q -a | grep systemperl`
rpm --install --force --nodeps LON-CAPA-systemperl-3.8-rh7.i386.rpm

If some of the developers could install this and see if they find anything
missing that would be much appreciated.  It's running on my system now and
I haven't seen any hickups.

Oh, it does include Postscript::Simple, which is the reason it had to be made.
The Fedora install will consist of many perl-*.rpm files and will not have
a LON-CAPA systemperl built for it.  Others have pointed out headaches with
the monolithic systemperl situation.
