I have tried the RPM, didn’t work. I tried to build from several old version of Atom, only to get segmentation faults. So I downloaded and installed the latest version of Node and Yargs. Downloaded the latest beta of Atom. Used GCC 5.2, and built glib 2.42.1 and libsecret-0-10. I finally get atom to start without a seg fault, ‘ps -ef’ says it is running, but not getting any kind of display.
I installed it on a Red Hat Enterpise Linux 6 workstation, but I am logged into the workstation using X-Win-32. I can easiler open other application xterm, Matlab, but not Atom. Thanks.
