Would my problem be with the rpm build I downloaded? It wasn't from the 
Mandrake site (can't exactly remememer where from), and there were some 
problems with dependencies, which eventually seemed to get sorted.
What package did you use - or did you compile from the tar.gz?
I had previously installed 1.1.6 (though not used it until now) and that 
is working fine - is another possibility that one version interferes 
with the other?
Excuse any glaring ignorance showing in this reply - I'm not a Linux 
expert by a long way!
