I arranged to make a presentation a few weeks ago to the local Linux
users' group. That group meets after hours in the local headquarters
of a national-scale company, with employees of that company bringing
their own boxen into the auditorium and setting up network, video
projection, etc. before each mtg.
I had previously done a presentation on REBOL (well received BTW) using
a box running RedHat 6.whatever. THIS time, the box set up for the mtg
was running Debian. Both the public beta of /View and the current rlse
of /Core blew up instead of running. I tap-danced furiously, and did a
few minutes on XML. I didn't report it at the time because the box was
actually running Debian Unstable, and assumed that maybe the guy who
set it up was just a little too close to the edge. Also, it wasn't my
box (and I was on the stage...) so I couldn't spend too much time
Since then, I've seen traffic on this list indicating that others have
had problems with REBOL on Debian, so perhaps my experience wasn't so
unique or box-owner-dependent after all???
