I just installed Red Hat 5.0, and most everything is working
According to the RH install program notes, the 3.33 GNU ghostscript that
ships with the Red Hat CDs is known to have some problems with the newer
HP LaserJet 5-series printers. So, I went to RH's ftp server and
downloaded the ghostscript-5.10-2.rpm file (and the two font files), and
installed it. I then tried running "gs", which resulted in a
segmentation fault & coredump!!!
I've re-downloaded the new ghostscript RPM file from two different
sites, upgraded to the latest available (official RH RPM) ld.so, libc,
and glibc, and it still doesn't work. No matter what I do, gs
Is it "safe" to just download the GS source and recompile on my system?
(I.e., will the RedHat utils that require GS still work if I use a GS
that wasn't installed from an official RPM?)
