Gnumeric 0.48 won't read the files written by 0.65. Is there a way round
this problem? I have investigated installing the newer version on both
machines but it looks likely to be a major headache on the RH 6.2.
system because it appears quite a lot of libraries would need to be
installed or upgraded.

0.48 is so ancient its scary, 0.65 is not much better.  The current
stable release is 1.0.8 and we have guaranteed that all future
versions will be able to read and write the 1.0.x format.  During
the 0.x phase we only enforced backwards compatibility, not
forwards.  So it is not surprising that 0.48 could not read the
never format.

Look at the date of the original message (Oct 29, 2001) - something is
wrong with the mailing list. Granted the gnumeric versions that came
with Red Hat 6.2 and 7.0 were still old in Oct. 2001 (I believe Red
Hat 7.2 was out then or was very shortly afterwards).
