For some reason it seems that Fedora and Debian are using different
versions of the libedit shared library. Our binary installers are build on
Fedora. For the release we'll probably have two binary distributions, one
for Fedora and one for Debian(-based) systems.
You might be able to get away with symlinking libedit.so.0 to libedit.so.2
in the meantime.
