Because the Linux Rev's issues have probably not been extensivelly
tested under many kind of Linux distributions, a newbie can get some
troubbles in running Rev under Linux.
The best to do is to install it under a RedHat distro and to test Rev
under differents XFree86 graphical desktop managers, Gnome, first, and
For my own, to avoid possibles problems, i'm still running MC 2.5 under
Linux (Suse 8 Pro x86) and Rev 2.1.1 under MacOSX (Jaguar).
Hope this help !
