Subject FB 1.5.0 SS on Linux (Fedora Core 2)
Author Dan Wilson

I downloaded FB SS for Linux and attempted to install it. The install failed, apparently because FB was built for 686-based platforms, and I am using an older AMD K6-2 CPU? Has anyone encountered this problem?

To attempt to work around it, I downloaded FB sources, configured for SuperServer, then changed the gen/make.platform file, changing -mcpu=686 to -mcpu=586, and it is building as I write this. Am I completely off-base, or should this procedure generate an executable that I can use? Will a make install do everything for installation that the rpm would have done?

Any other gotchas I should be aware of as I proceed?
