Hi All,
I know this is slightly off topic - so apologies for that, but can
anyone point me at information about why gimp-perl would fail to create
sockets as a user (net callback errors running image generation scripts
in greenstone) but be able to do this fine for root.

This has to be a permission issue - but where?

A link to a HowTo or Tutorial on this is fine or any other info - its
all good.

I am running Redhat Linux 7.3 with the following relevant packages
installed:
