I am running a Red Hat 9.0 system that currently has GIMP 1.2.3

involved software yet so I am running into some fundamental questions.

I strongly suggest you don't compile GIMP from source then but use a
precompiled binary. has RPMs for RedHat 9.0.
Unfortunately not 2.0.1 yet but you could at least install all the
dependencies from there and compile only GIMP. That will save you some
major troubles. Getting all the dependencies compiled from source
requires a good deal of experience building software from source.

Thanks for the quick response and the link to the RPMs. Those should be very helpful. Did I miss this on somehow?

Secondly, in the GIMP ftp directory I saw a patch for 2.0.1. What is
this patch for and do I need it?

It's the patch to update gimp-2.0.0 to gimp-2.0.1. Useful for people who downloaded gimp-2.0.0 earlier.

Oh, ok, good to know.
