The current set of RPMs are for RedHat 5.x. You have RedHat 6.0.  I
can't guarantee binary compatibility across major releases of RedHat

You might try installing  compat-glibc-5.2-
and anything else beginning with "compat-" to see if that helps,
but this is just a guess.

I will produce RPMs for RedHat 6.0 just as soon as I get hold of it,
but since it only started shipping on Monday, it is a bit early yet.
