I should add.

There are some apps which are not quite 100% yet.  mplayer seems to work in 
some places but not others.  That's the biggest one I've found so far, and 
I've seen it repeated by others.

In Gentoo, things have problems if I don't have -fPIC in my cflags.  I'd 
assume anything you compile by hand would need that as well, or you'll have 
similar problems.  My Guess is that any RPMs you DL will have already done 
this.  But it's worth noting in case you do any manual compiling, because 
things WILL break otherwise.
