That should probably read Unisys _patent_ enforcement. Thanks to
Unisys the LZW compression is patented and obviously RedHat decided
not to include the code in question in their GIMP packages. There
might be an additional package that adds this functionality, otherwise
you will have to choose some other compression than LZW in the tiff
save dialog. If that dialog does not appear when you save the file,
try to use "Save As".
