    Then let me be the first to disagree... How can source packages not work for you? Only at very rare occasions do source packages not work for me. What gcc version are you using, yowwww?

    I knew my statement would cause dissention.

    I am talking about my overall experience with sources. I recently (within the last month) upgraded to Red Hat 9 on my main box and was previously using Red Hat 7.3. My current version of gcc (as far as I can recall) is 3.2.

    I would get dependency errors and sometimes the programs just wouldn't open, since I have been using rpm files that are precompiled for the specific distro I have had no problems whatsoever. Yeah, I have to track down a couple of dependencies here and there, but it's not a big deal.
