Bah. Poldek is a most excellent RPM distro that's compiled for i686. The
apache RPMs are split into 30 separate RPMs, one for each module, so you
don't have to install massive big groups of patches if you don't want to.
They have application groups in clusters, so for instance, if they update
openssl, and you run "poldek --dist-upgrade", it'll install openssl & all
the RPMS that that depends on. Better yet, it'll use rsync to download the
differences between the old package list, and the new one!
And yes, it does help to vent, it has to be said.
