Hi Tim,

    Well, this makes the 2nd or 3rd time I've had libs not installed 
that the database says are installed.  When I set this system up, I knew 
I'd be needing some of the backwards compatible libraries, and installed 
everything I could find.  This one however, the 2.3.3 is NOT installed 
as of yet, and not sure it's in the compat libs in the first place.  
Googling came up wiht some odd places to find it, but none were for the 
centos build, or even rh for that matter.  I don't recall the name, but 
I thought linux libraries were all pretty much the same across the 
various flavors.  I suppose not.

    And the rpm-ql..... it gives the location of the compat libs, but 
again, it's not finding the 2.3.3 version, and until it does, this 
software will not run.
