I know on some (probably most) platforms you have to symlink some libs to make it run. Are you maybe just talking about that?
After that, it just crashes with an assertion. It seems that has to do with missing or wrong configs, but there's not much else to be found on google. My configs are present and look fine.
Also, only rpm based distributions are officially supported, but a lot of people hack around that to get it working on Ubuntu (like me).
