=== J'utilise RedHat 7 et... ? ===
Update your gcc packages. See http://redhat.com/errata/ to fix it and http://www.gnu.org/software/gcc/gcc-2.96.html for an explanation why.

How do I install new scenery? ===
The scenery archive files (ie. w100n30.tar.gz) should be untarred into the Scenery/Terrain directory in your $FG_ROOT.
=== Comment configurer mon joystick ? ===
should come with a helpful program called `fgjs` that can help configure your joystick. Run `fgjs` and then copy the dot file it created into your home directory or add its contents to your existing rc file.
Also, see the README.Joystick file located in the FlightGear/docs-mini/ directory of the source distribution and the [[Joystick]] -page on the wiki.
What format should my personal .fgfsrc file be in? ===
Your .fgfsrc file should simply be a list of [[Command Line Parameters| command line options]] with one option per line. The file is not an XML file.
If you would rather use an [[XML]] configuration file, you can add something like the following in your .fgfsrc
Almost every option corresponds to a property, so you can choose to use whichever method best suits your needs.
Why do I get an error loading libopenal.so.0? ===
With the default installation, libopenal.so.0 is installed into /usr/local/lib. You need to ensure that that path is listed in /etc/ld.so.conf, then run `ldconfig` as root.
Why do I get "ssgInit called without a valid OpenGL context"? ===
In short, your GL libraries are broken. So far only Red Hat 7.x users have experienced this ( see http://www.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=18867). The only solutions are possibly complicated ones: you can either change distributions ( most of us prefer Debian) or upgrade/ downgrade your Mesa libs.
Why do some other GL applications work though? Well, Steve Baker (Mr. PLIB) has explained this on the plib -users list (http://www.geocrawler.com/lists/3/SourceForge/1867/0/6470648/).
What happened to the panel, keyboard, etc? ===
The problem is almost certainly that your base package is out of sync with FlightGear. Many configurable parts of FlightGear are defined in [[XML]] files contained in the base package.
Why doesn' t audio work properly under Irix? ===
as of June 2001) uses the Portable Libraries ([[PLIB]]) for playing audio. The audio queue implementation of PLIB is far from optimal (in fact it' s just wrong). This seems to work on other platforms quite well, but Irix expects things to be programmed properly.
There has been discussion about using OpenAL (http://www.openal.org/) for the next release of both PLIB and FlightGear. Tests show that the OpenAL audio implementation does the job right, meaning that these audio problems should be gone by then. In the mean time it is best to disable audio on Irix completely ( by adding --disable-sound either on the command line or to your $HOME/.fgfsrc file).
=== Why is FlightGear so slow? ===
