I recently upgraded to Fedora Core 3 and Mathematica
appears to be non-functional. Two queries to Technical
support have gone unanswered. 

Here's an example of what happens

$ math
Mathematica 4.1 for Linux
Copyright 1988-2000 Wolfram Research, Inc.
 -- Motif graphics initialized --

In[1]:= expr = (1/3) Exp[-s] s^5

Out[1]= ----
        3 E

In[2]:= Check[Integrate[expr,{s,0,Infinity}],fails]

Out[2]= fails

In[3]:= Segmentation fault

Many other "Segmentation fault" results lead me to
suspect that the problem has nothing to do
with the specific calculations but that there is some
system-level incompatability. The MathKernel is still
linking to and as it did for
RedHat 7.0.

I tried reinstalling Mathematica from scratch under the
Fedora Core 3; it made no difference.

Have any of you had difficulties with running Mathematica under
Fedora? If so, were there any workarounds?

Many thanks.
