Has anyone succesfully installed squeak on RH 8.0?

I do.

You can download what I am using from:


There's nothing special about downloading it from my site.  You can also 
get it from about anywhere.  But at least from my site you know exactly 
what I am using.  And it works fine on RH 8.0.

Also, my download page mentions that Squeak is in the "ports" collection 
of FreeBSD, thus indicating that FreeBSD requires a different VM binary 
than Linux.  Well, interestingly enough, the Linux binary I'm using 
under RH 8.0 runs on my FreeBSD box as well, with no changes.
