> Do I need to explicitly tell the tao idl compiler to drop back to an older IDL version? If so, what is the exact syntax for doing so?
That is not possible, the TAO and TAO_IDL version should match, at the moment TAO_IDL changes it is very likely that also the core of TAO changes.
We have done some tests with TAOX11 (see http://www.taox11.org
) on fc32, we haven't seen this problem, when you need help see the main github repo or consider hiring someone to assist, see https://www.remedy.nl
