Hi Matthew,

would it be possible to get a list of the LONCAPA prerequisites,
in particular, the list of rpm packages that need to be installed?
Anything else that is done differently compared to RH 7.3?

I'd like to install LONCAPA on a SuSE-9.1 box (new access server).
The main components (2.6 kernel, apache2) seem to be similar to
Fedora 2. Thus, I should get fairly far by doing installing LONCAPA
accoding to Fedora 2 rules. Just the yum stuff won't work.
