Update 05/31/12: I'm getting a kernel panic when I shutdown/reboot, see for a fix.
Update 05/31/12 Sound is broken. No solution yet
Update 06/01/12 Sound working. A known bug was a PAM permission problem that could be fixed by running authconfig --updateall . I also upgraded to a 3.4x ccrma kernel So it could be either or both.

Hello World, Hello COBOL (updated with code))
Well, I got open-cobol to compile and run a simple "Hello Word" program. So it works.
It seems that Cobol is still in the punch card age in which commands have to start in the 8th column. But open-cobol has a freestyle option.
(e:paul) wanted to see some code:
Here's the sort of COBOL"hello world" I remember from my college days:
000100 IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.
000200 PROGRAM-ID. HELLOWORLD.
000500 ENVIRONMENT DIVISION.
000600 CONFIGURATION SECTION.
000700 SOURCE-COMPUTER. RM-COBOL.
000800 OBJECT-COMPUTER. RM-COBOL.
001000 DATA DIVISION.
001100 FILE SECTION.
100000 PROCEDURE DIVISION.
100200 MAIN-LOGIC SECTION.
100400 DISPLAY " " LINE 1 POSITION 1 ERASE EOS.
100500 DISPLAY "Hello world!" LINE 15 POSITION 10.
100600 STOP RUN.
Here's the same thing freestyled in open-cobol.
DISPLAY 'Hello world!'.
