It is VERY IMPORTANT to provide complete details of the
operating system versrion. Please say exactly what very
of FC3 and what version of FC4. Which kernel? What hardware
e.g. is it 32-bit or 64-bit linux?

Again it is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL that when reporting a
failure of this kind to provide complete information about
what version of operating system. And also to report in
detail the messages generated during the attempt to install.

I am able to build Axiom from tla on Fedora Core 3 x86-64.

The current Axiom build on all linux systems *except* Debian
is designed to use gcl re-built from the Axiom CVS. Only on
Debian, a different make script makes it possible to use a
pre-existing installation of gcl.

Axiom is know to work on both Fedora Core 3 and 4.

If you provide sufficient information I am sure that it
will be possible to discouver what is going wrong.
