Linux Tao

Has anybody completed a list of the issues that we face with using RR in
Linux?

I'm in the process of taking a project that I use all the time in Windoze
and trying to port it.

To this point, things I've found are:
1) odbc
   a) have to tell RR where the specific odbc driver that i'm using is
located
   b) have to specify the database type as "odbc" (lowercase) instead of
"ODBC" (uppercase)
   c) have to insert "DSN=" on the front of the dsn source or RR won't be
able to talk to the driver.
2) Display
   a) Table Fields are unbelievably slow to respond e.g. clicking on a line
takes seconds to hilight
   b) The display in general seems very slow.
