Is there any reason why you are using Redhat 9. Redhat 9 was the last community release of Redhat Linux, and has been superseded by the Fedora Project. Redhat 9 is now very old, and Redhat stopped supporting it several years ago.

I strongly recommend that you upgrade to the latest version of Fedora, which is currently Fedora Core 6. Alternatively, Ubuntu is an excellent distro for newbies. Any current distro has a much more recent kernel release, along with much more recent versions of all other programs.

Fixed. Found that something on a generic mounted /usr/local was not compatable with RH9 apparently. Probably libraries. Used the original /usr/local that was built in the original OS install and the problem went away. Not worth tracking down further.
