Re: Problems after RH7 upgrade

Well, to start with, RH7 is broken.  They used a compiler snapshot
that is binary incompatible with everything else and has a broken
optimizer.  Also, they used a bad glibc (or maybe the compiler makes
it seem bad) that incorrectly reports the long and word size on Intel
(maybe other) architectures.

I don't have a solution to your helix-update problem.  I always got my
rpms from or built them from the srpms they provide.

Now I've upgraded <wink> to Debian.
