So, it seems I need; LIBC, FontConfig, MozSupport, Innowin, Odin, and
some Environment considerations. Oh, and I apparently need WPI, which I
never avoided but don't seem to have. I think I have extracted WPI
files, but don't quite remember how, so that adds another chapter to the

sent me to eComstation, where I got lost in a two page loop.
Is there some reason that the apps cannot be packaged with what they
need in their own directories?
And, Flash is a moving target. In Win if I don't keep up with updates I
have sites telling me I cannot enter without the update.
Anyway, I decided to try SM 2.14.11. I got a "Cannot start" error box.
It offers five possible reasons, four of which are kind of trivial. I

my DLLs are current and that box has not kept up with the possibilities.

Not sure Innowin is useful for anything any more, except the old
packaged Win32 versions of Acrobat. Odin you only need for the latest
Win32 Flash wrapper.

The WarpIn tool is certainly the easiest way to install WPI packages;
there are alternatives, whether it be different packaging or different
extraction tools, but there's usually not a good reason to make things

Fortunately, Flash is dying.

Running from the command line usually gives you better info.

Guess when it becomes GA you simply need to run 'yum install FireFox'
Thanks Dave, I've checked those prereqs and have them as below. I've tried two
versions of stdcpp. Is there anyway of narrowing down the problem? I note that
gcc473 is smaller than gcc446. would this be expected?
