Caldera 3.1.1 -- Uses RPM's
I am very much a novice with Linux, but not with computers. I would be
willing to make RPM's if someone could get me instructions. I have Red Hat
7.2 and Caldera 3.1.1 installed on separate machines.
At this point I don't even have any extra software installed on these
machines. What version of what development software do I need installed to
be able to compile Sword?
