That's a good article.  But I didn't have to do any of this to get strigi to 
work on this laptop - a clean install from DVD.  I wonder if the problem only 
occurs if you use the LiveCD and get Redland running first.  Certainly that's 
the way I installed F10 on the netbook (remember that had the same problem as 
you) but the F11 update sorted it.  It does sound to me, as though it's the 
LiveCD install that's causing this.
