    First let me say that you should use the newest release,
    0.82. I made a pretty big mistake when I released .80 and it
    won't run properly even if you can install it!

    About Installation:

    On most systems, you can simply untar the tarball, then
    enter the directory gclisp-X.XX (0.80 in your case). Next
    you would type the following commands:

    make install

    The command 'make install' must be run as root.

    You are the first case I've heard of someone trying an
    install on RedHat. I use Gentoo Linux and have no real
    experience with RedHat specifically, but I'm looking into
    building an rpm. I hope to have something for you soon.

    Here's a source rpm. I don't have any clue if it works. I
    really need someone with a red hat system (hint, hint) to
    test it. I'll have to see about getting one set up for
    myself, but for now this is the most I can do. Since it's
    (hopefully) a source RPM, it's going to compile gclisp from
    scratch. You'll need to have gtkmm installed. I would
    imagine there is an RPM for that somewhere as well. Also,
    grab the RPM for clisp, because I only wrote the frontend,
    you'll need clisp if you want to do anything.
    Sorry that I don't have anything better for you yet, but
    I'll try to get RedHat running so that I can poke around a
    lot more and get a decent RPM. OR, I'll try to find someone
    else to do it for me :-P

    OK, I believe I've got everything sorted out. Just to be
    clear for anyone reading this in the future, RPM's can now
    be downloaded at the same spot as the source tarballs. You
    can find links on the homepage or straight from sourceforge.
