but uname -r returns 2.6.12-rc6-RT-V0.7.48-36, I'd just tried 50-17
but it locked up at the bogomips calc during the very early boot.
Yeah, I bleed around the edges occasionally. :)
The rest are leftovers from upgraded stuff, like gimp-print-4.2.6 and
gimp-print-4.2.7. Gutenprint-5.0beta2 built from the tarball is
doing those duties rather nicely.
Strangely, no reports for any python or libxml2 stuff are in that
list. libxml2-devel of course but nothing else even remotely
Side comment here, regarding a utility called checkinstall. It would
be very nice if some official help could be had in keeping it up to
the changes in rpm, as that would allow us to make it look like an
rpm had been installed & thereby satisfy all the rpm dependencies
that are false negatives when we put in a tarball to scratch an itch
in a broken distro. Like the cups in FC2 was a fscking disaster.
And it had 2 security related updates that didn't fix the kde crash,
I tried them both.
