Not until you tell everyone what you downloaded. Did you get an rpm? Where you should just click on it an it will install? Or did you get a .tar.gz, or a tgz. And did you check to make sure that redhat doesnt have gphoto2 on its install disks first?

I downloaded a tar.gz

and yes gphoto2 comes with linux, and is on the install disk, BUT the current version that linux gave me does not support my camera.

I read in the updates that the newer version that came out supports my cam.

thanks for looking
