This has been my experience too.  Being fairly new to IC (but not
Linux), I find IC cumbersome to install.  Ideally the rpm should be
able to solve all the multitude of permissions settings required.
Also, you would think the rpm would also handle dependency checking
for the perl modules required for the admin stuff.

I would suggest you make sure all the perl modules are installed.  I
think you can run something like this from the command line:

# perl -MCPAN -e 'install Bundle::Interchange'

WARNING: This may actually re-install your entire perl distribution.
It did on mine.  However, going this route was the only think that got
IC installed and working on my box.
