Thanks, it was there in the selection menu. However, it was not in
the Tools menu, which was where I was looking originally.
As far as upgrading, I'm on an RH9 box, so getting out of date is
probably understandable. I really hate to upgrade things in RedHat
because of all the problems with RPMs. RPM packages are often buggy,
and fail when a other supporting packages don't meet the version
criteria, which is often overly conservative and unnecessary. The
support packages then often have the same issue, so upgrades tend to
snowball into a major project. Sometimes I will -cave in-, and get
the latest tarball, but then I end up with two versions in parallel
and the RPM system reports the older version.
Anyway, I'll switch to gentoo at some point and upgrading problems
will be resolved.
