Hrmm didn't get D.Hilbig's reply..so mines included in this...
my problem is solved once after installation of devel package.
during next upgradation i'll switch to centos.
you'll still have the same problem, last time I loaded up a CentOS
image. This is why I am only useing slackware now, that includes the
gradual phase out of BSD and slowaris for it, rock hard stable and
reliable, the programs contained within are not messed with like RH/
Debian etc do (hence way less problems = way less updates) and
greater than 5 years support of updates, I've used Slackware since v2
and I've used RH since early days as well, but its so B.S now I
wouldnt use even fedora on a desktop again, that's Ubuntu's job
now :) . Hrmm come to think of it I think we have so e AIX boxes that
need replacing soon too ;)

alternative. I use CentOS (http://www.centos.org) which is
RHEL production release.
But its still released by the same butchers that hack out code to
suite their internal politics. Early RH releases were OK, that's
before they started to get too big and political, but not as reliable
as much as Slackware or BSD is (for reasons stated above), but in
fairness I have not had access to RHEL5 to try, but you know what
they say, same dog different s... anyways way OT now so I'll end my
participation in this thread :)
all the best.
