Strictly speaking, Red Hat systems are not covered, but Fedora Core ones are.

Red Hat Linux <= 9 has too old OpenSP, so it falls into the "generic unix" case.
 The FC packages can probably be used as-is on Red Hat Enterprise Linuxen >= 3,
but I don't have a system to verify that on (that's why it's not in the

Setting fixed, please reopen and assign to me if you think this needs more work.

If I can get you access to a RHEL 3.0 ES box, can you verify and update the docs?

Ok, I took a look at the RHEL3 situation (thanks, Terje!), and it does not look
too promising wrt. the RPMs.

First, RHEL3 has OpenSP 1.3.4.  It /could/ be possible to upgrade to a later one
using the openjade RPM from Fedora Core X, but I believe that would not be a
good idea wrt. the RHEL support contracts.

Further, if/when we soon start to require Perl >= 5.8.2, that would have to be
upgraded too (RHEL3 has 5.8.0).  And additionally, the required perl-* rpms from would probably have to be rebuilt on EL due to differing versioned
perl @INC directories.

Summary: I think RHEL users are better off building everything from source, and
we should leave the validator installation docs wrt. this exactly as they are
now. -->  Re-setting fixed.
