Some weirdness happened to my subscription to the mailing list; here's my
mail from yesterday.

I'm interested in finding the following things, before I invest time in
recreating them:

1. XFree stuff.
Somewhere, somehow, I picked up a copy of /usr/X11R6/lib/libXaw.so.6.1,
but I no longer remember who compiled it for SGI/Linux. Alan, maybe? In
any case, when I try to run 'xterm' (which came in the same tarball,
IIRC), I get a:
libXaw.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

although the file exists.

Does anyone have source patched I could turn into an RPM, or is this all
pretty much just from the source?

2. binutils

I think my sdb has taken a bit of a crash, since I can compile properly
only at certain times of the day.  Is there a binutils RPM out there
anywhere, and if not, can people tell me a list of the required patches
and latest version?

Other notes:
- When rpm 2.5 comes out later this week (possibly today), it'll have the
problems with mipseb/mipsel sorted out.  Eventually all the RPMs on Linus
in the mipsel are going to have to be replaced with repackaged ones.  When
RedHat 5.1 comes out (my guess: early next month), I'll compile the mipseb
packages.  In any case, I'll get mipsel RPMs out when 2.5 comes out for
easy upgrading.

- I'm going to be in Raleigh-Durham for LinuxExpo May 28-30.  Is there any
chance of us having an informal get together? 

- Alex
