That is true if hylafax can be pointed to use optional version of 

If that is not the case, then ghostscript has to be replaced.

P.S. I am not a hylafax user so I can not determine what should be done.



Thanks so much for everyone's help !!!!

I am a new hylafax+ user and other than the ghostscript problem I am
very impressed.  Hylafax+ does allow you to control the location of
ghostscript so once I get it compiled I should be able to point it to
the correct version.  Instead of using the Fedora RPM, I am going to
compile it and try to route the files to a different location.  I really
screwed up a different system trying to do an rpm install with a Fedora
module with a different piece of software.  I am a little gun shy about
doing that again.

I am using Hylafax+ on CentOS 5.9 to replace a vsifax system installed
on SCO.  If I can get ghostscript 9.07 installed properly this will be a
very good replacement.  

If any of you have additional suggestions, I sure appreciate your help.
