Hello all,

I am trying to install FreeIPA on Redhat 5.7, and I'm having some troubles.
I believe I'm not missing any dependencies.

Can anyone tell me what is causing the problem below? (Yes, I'm
running make as root - it's not a problem in this instance)

# make
if [ ! -e RELEASE ]; then echo 0>  RELEASE; fi

Many thanks,


You will have some serious difficulties getting the server to build in 5.x due to the version of python. We don't support the server in RHEL 5.
