No, I don't think so. I installed slimserver (once I figured out all the
little options) on a redhat 9 box in about 15 minutes.

I've seen more issues from installing on Mandrake vs. some of the other
distros (debian, slackware, redhat, suse, etc.) Slim even runs on an
S/390 LPAR of an IBM mainframe with Suse!

Don't do FC2. I have been trying to get another application up on
FC2, and I'm having a little problem. I tried slimserver last night and
ran into a few inconsistencies. Went back to FC1 and it worked
perfectly. I ran it on debian for a few weeks with no issues either.
I run it at work on Windows XP, and I've had more problems with
that than my installation at home. I think having 10 people running
softsqueeze streaming audio from my workstation probably has more to
do with it than anything.
