How did you install 0.18.1? From source or from packages?
I have spent all afternoon trying to find a repository with 0.18.1 for 
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy). Looks like if I wanted to run 0.17.X I would be 
all set, but not with 0.18.1!

Also, I just tried to kick off a compile from source, but I am getting 
the EXACT same errors I was getting in FC4.

Any ideas? I am about to throw in the towel.
