The version of GCC for Red Hat Linux 6.x distributions links against version 2.1 of the GNU C runtime library. You must download a specially compiled version of libML.a from the WRI Technical Support website. See this URL: http://support.wolfram.com/MathLink/Linux/RedHat6.html This issue is not limited to Red Hat 6.x. You will also find that this is the case for recent releases of other Linux distributions such as SuSE 6.2 and Caldera OpenLinux 2.3. -- P.J.
