hi eveyone,

Maybe most popular among science/business distibution - Centos/Scientific Linux - and TPP ver. 4.8, 5.0, 5.1 they all fail to compile, only 4.7 managed to compile successfully. I've tried different compilers/toolsets and all versions above 4.7 do not compile.
Do you guys use any newer TPP version than what Labkey's docs suggest?
If yes, do these new versions compile for you?

My thoughts...
I'm no programmer but I thought before, TPP developers might live on a different planet, planet Windows but, I did not suppose that planet is in a far far away galaxy!
How could you release anything(not to mention carry on developing this way) without testing and proofing your software? Only, if you do not give a toss?
