Is this a supported platform? I see SUSE/RedHat installs. What gives? Are anyof these usable?

    Debian packages are available

    Neither Debian or Ubuntu are officially supported platforms as you can see in http://www.zeroc.com/platforms.html.

    Nevertheless I maintain the ZeroC Ice packages for Debian and I never faced a serious compatibility issue so far. Indeed the Debian binary packages may actually be easier to setup in some scenarios (e.g. Debian version falls-back to poll when epoll is not available).

    Ubuntu Edgy universe and later includes my packages.

    Ubuntu is not an officially supported platform, so we won't make any promises. However, I compile Ice on Ubuntu all the time without problems.

    Cheers,

    Michi.

    Michi,

    Thanks. That's a good data point. I'll start looking into this shortly.

    Michi,

    Just a quick follow up. I've rebuilt 3.2.1 from scratch on my system. Thanks for the tip.

    Regards,
