Greetings!  Great to hear this is working for you!  This is the
intention behind the Debian setup -- environment variable toggled
image flavor selection at runtime.  I take it this is the rpm produced
from the converted .deb?  So you worked out the shared lib issues?  In
any case, is there a mechanism whereby GCL could get rpm's distributed
throught the redhat et. al. channels automatically?

Take care,
