  I've put IDL on a redhat 7 system. The only problem I've had is with
  the license manager, not that this isn't a small problem since this
  is the way RSI prefers to do the licensing.  When I had an
  evaluation sort of license that didn't require the license manager,
  I had no problem.

  There is a bug report in on the license manager issue but it only
  went in on Friday. Besides, it's unclear to me that this isn't a
  problem with my particular installation hardware (bp6 board with
  dual celerons). It may be that other, less exotic installations will
  have no problems at all.

  My advice: try it and see.
