I'm not even aware of there being an easily obtainable list of fixes. 
You're using beta software, so be prepared for things like this.

If you are using the same gluster binaries on both, your problem is most likely related to an OS configuration issue. Have you verified that client/server daemons are running? Is fuse module loaded on the client?

I'm using RHEL 5.2 (actually CentOS 5.2, but close enough), and I've 
experienced various issues with various versions, including all current 
ones. But problems generally get fixed reasonably quickly. Keep up with 
the version updates and don't use it in production yet.

Hmm, I have SELinux completely disabled, but I doubt this is likely to 
be a cause of your problems.
