hi nando, there is a deadlock that occurs in juce apps in fedora 8,  
here is a link to the discussino about that a student here (Andrew  
Burnson) sent to me after he encountered the problem:


i think the issue is that the linux juce maintainer is using a  
compatibiliy lib called XCB and the version that is required is not in  
the fedora distro.
juce works great in my old planetccrma (fedora 3)  but that release  
solong in the tooth now its not easy to update apps and software base.
