Comments on: Yes, we do support Linux
We've received a flood of messages asking for new REBOL builds for Linux, and I wanted to be sure to mention that we are working on it.
Yes, we've had what I consider to be problems building for Linux. (BTW, not everyone agrees that these are problems. For some people it works fine.) Perhaps it is really just a problem for me personally because: I like it when a single REBOL binary runs on as many Linux versions as possible. This used to be the easy -- before we added some of the newer features that require additional libraries of specific versions, some of which are not installed by default on various Linux installations.
What can we do? Here are the solutions we are looking at:
So, there you have it. We do support Linux. We use Linux all over the place. There have been some delays, and we are sorry about that. We don't mind supporting the primary distibutions, and we hope to get this situation fixed soon.
Are you a Linux expert? If so, we welcome your help and advice on this topic.
