    Dear all,

    when installing tioga

    http://www.kitp.ucsb.edu/~paxton/tioga.html,

    I get a cannot read symbol, bad value error (see below).
    I tried the gem and QUICK_INSTALL and HOME_INSTALL
    variants.
    Has somebody else had this problem ? How did they solve it -
    change compilation flags for -fPIC ?

    Best regards,

    Axel

    wouldn't it make more sense to write on the tioga user's mailing list
    or file a bug on their rubyforge project?

    Dear Ryan,
    nice to know that there is a special user's mailing list. I missed that.

    Best regards,
