kdict missing - FC8 - KDE 3.5.8-7

Just installed FC8 and associated KDE. Did a "server" install.

Kdict is missing.

I know that it is supposed to be part of the kdenetwork stuff, and many/most of the other applications from that suite appear to be present. But kdict is nowhere to be found.

Apparently kdenetwork RPM has been split into a basic package and kednetwork-extras. And for some reason, the "-extras" is not part of the FC8 build.

And guess where kdict ended up!

Downloaded kdenetwork-extras for FC8 and installed. kdict is now available.
