Re: Installing swish-e on RedHat 9 without gcc

Hello again,

Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately, I am not too familiar with 
building RPMs, even less with customizing them.

I just want to copy the files on one machine to another machine with 
the same directory hierarchy.

Would it be easier if I just installed gcc?

Many thanks.
