These packages were compiled under SuSE 9.0. They should fit the recent
versions of other Linux distributions too.

In older distributions the RPM installation might fail complaining about
unresolved dependences on GLIBC or something similar. In this unfortunate case
you will have to take the source RPM and recompile it: rpm --rebuild
polymake-*.src.rpm or rpmbuild --rebuild polymake-*.src.rpm .

Packages are compiled for various CPU models. The i586 variant is a generic
Pentium architecture used in SuSE by default, i586 is optimized for Pentium 4,
and athlon for AMD Athlon XP. Be sure to pick the package most suitable to your
