Err, no.

There is a translation of FreeUDFLib for Linux done by Rob Schieck, available from the Mers site, but code for the blob UDFs wasn't debugged (so it doesn't work). Since early in August there have been purpose-written UDF libs for Windows and Linux for use with the Replication module. This is noted in HowToInstall.txt.

Please go back to the registered download site and pick up the Blobcompare.tar file which contains a UDF especially written for the Replication module. It sounds as if you have a very old version of the RPL help file, too. Pick this up - in the Appendix are instructions for installing the UDF.
