I snarfed the binaries that Stephane downloaded and installed on my
home/work machines (both running 7.1)
Only problem I've had was with the Mozilla packages that came down. On
the home machine it barffed at them wouldn't contiue, claimed failed
dependancies or conflicts or something but didn't tell me what with. I
installed the suspect packages with a simple "rpm -Uvh" without
problems. The install then continued, but after the install redcarpet
claimed that there was updates to the mozilla packages. From what I
could see they where identical but I let it do it's thang and everything
was fine after that. Runs much faster even with nautilus than redhat 7.0
with ximian gnome 1.2 and eazels build of nautilus. Or maybe it feels
like that 'cause it's sexy and new.
Similar tail here at work, both boxes where vanila RedHat 7.1 boxes, but
behaviour was different on both boxes. i.e. didn't complain about the
mozilla packages at install time but did claim there where updated
packages whcih seemed identical to the ones I'd installed. Again letting
it have it's way and upgrade seemed to work out.
I have found some problems with RedCarpet though.
1) Select Install Local Packages from the file menu. The Load File
dialog opens and the file selection box at the bottem says *.deb, even
thought this is a RedHat box. Not really a biggie but..
2) Try and change *.deb to *.rpm and then hit return and what that baby
crash. The crash brings up a bug report dialog (Which I think is a
seriously cool feature) however
3) When you have to select the package that the bug relates to there is
no redcarpet or ximian or anything that I could see that was
