Hmm, and there I thought support for LinuxPPC was
dropped after MetaCard 2.4.1 ? So the last one you can
run on YDL should be Revolution 1.1.1 IIRC.
The absence of engines is no big deal, as by default
it only needs the engine for that platform -- and
that's the one you're running Revolution with anyway,
so it can simply make a quick copy when building a
When compiling for other platforms (you do have a
Studio or Enterprise, right?) it will connect to the
Revolution server and download the engines it needs if
it can't find them in the engines folder.

Hope this clarified things a bit,
