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
KDE, last.

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 !

Best Regards, Pierre
