Sorry about the problems you've been having.

I believe you'll also need to pick up the legacy readline:

rpm -i --oldpackage readline-2.2.1-6.i386.rpm

as gnuplot requires it.  Since I'm not totally familiar with your current
setup there may be things I'm missing.

I suggest, once you can log in to LON-CAPA, that you do a search.  If you get
a broken page it's likely because the perl-DBI or perl-DBD-MySQL packages
are missing.  I've had problems with these not being installed on some machines
that definately should have had it...

You are absolutely correct.

This should work just fine.

Let me know if you need anything else!
