I'm new to the list, but I'm very interested in this thread. I also,
can't get SWAT working. There is a caveat on the Red Hat site that
says the following with regard to SWAT on 7.0:

Unfortunately, although I've made this change, I still can't get
SQUAT from SWAT.
Anyone had success getting it working?
