Looking for a clue:

I have used 2.40a on RHLinux8 for a while with GLI. On another
brand new server I am working with RHL 9 (gcc 3.2.2, perl 5.8.2,
java re 1.4.2). When I tried to install 2.50 source and compile
("c" option), the compilation failed.

I just wanted to compile it to recompile it later with the configure
adjusted to build it as a z39.50 client, just as I did with 2.40a.
I ended up installing the binary to see how it works but I need to
recompile from source and configured as a z3950 client.

By the way, even though the install has the (S)panish option the
final GS web setup is still in english, why? I do not want my users to
change preferences to spanish everytime they access it.

Whom should I send the Install_Record file to pinpoint the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Azael.-
