I have now installed the satically-linked version of Stata for Linux. The 
installation went without any problems at all. However, the problems I 
mentioned yesterday remain. The most important problem concerns the redisplaying 
of regression models, which I have also described in a separate mail. Because of 
this I will contact tech-support@stata.com and report the results back to Statalist.
