    RE: Segmentation fault
    The notorious "Segmentation fault" is basically the default sink-state error message when no others can be found. Until some point you need to climb the massive learning curve of the GDB (GNU Debugger) you will have to debug the old-fashioned way: printf( "1" ); char *mystr="Hi"; printf( "2" ); strcpy(mystr,"new value" ; printf( "3" ); puts(mystr); printf( "4" ); return 0;

    How much RAM really needed to install Fedora?
    Since Fedora 10 it requires something more than the 390MB that my machine is maxed out with, and the still-used boilerplate Release Notes lie: 2.4.2.1.1. Processor and memory Minimum RAM for graphical: 192MiB Recommended RAM for graphical: 256MiB http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/f10/en_US/What_is_New_for_Installation_and_Live_Images.html#x86_specifics_for_Fedora

    I've had that problem go away by changing only the display to an old 1024x768, but if you've got a laptop try Mandriva 2008, not 2009...

    RE: how to open a .tar.bz2 file
    There's an easier way somewhat similar to the "Desktop Icon" way of things you mention. Just save (or drag) the tar.bz2 file to your desktop, then right-click on it and select "Extract Here." Although this method tends to clutter up the desktop, at least you always know where the files land (and you can move them around later once you got the app running)...

    RE: CarbonLib/Carbon API for Linux?
    What you need is to boot off a separate hardrive that is not connected to the net, make sure you have the best driver for your graphics card, kill-off all the time-wasting processes your distro leaves running (such as auto-updating), and de-nice the app. Please let us know if you need any help...
