I have never used your operating system so I shouldn't even be writing
this. However in order to get Interchange running very nicely on Fedora
Core 5 I found that I had to disable SELinux during installation.

It appeared that when Interchange was attempting to create the files in
the /var/run/interchange directory like socket, socket.ipc and
status.goldissue (I'm just reading my directory) this was regarded as a
security problem.

The reason I mention this is because I also had come to the baffling
conclusion that Interchange was running, yet the catalog was not
showing. Good Luck,
