When I try to install pine from an rpm it gives me these messages:

libcrypto.so.4 is needed for pine
libldap.so.2 is needed for pine
libssl.so.4 is needed for pine

I am running Fedora Core 4 and it looks like Im missing some files...any idea where I can get these...off the installation discs perhaps?

You can either check the installation source, the project homepages for those libraries (Google for them), or if all else fails:

you might also try nano...its a pico clone. i use it, and its good for coding, because some versions have colors and stuff...anyways, you might install nano from the source. thats what i do, because rpms suck. i hate redhat and fedora.(no offense, gentoo pwns)

sure I will give it a try. Fedora is my first personal use of Linux. I was introduced to SuSe 9.0 Linux in college and that is my favorite so far. Also this book I got on how to set up LAMP the author is using Fedora as well so I thought that would make it easier on a Linux noob :)

I also dont really plan on having personal attachments to any of the distros because each distro offers different tools and each is best at doing something different. In other words just use the tool that gets your job done the best..

I also dont like that some distros, such as Red Hat, are starting to close their code and becoming commercial because that almost defeats the purpose and greatness of open source software.

Never heard of gento...whats it like and what does it do best?
