They kind of rhyme, I can see the ease of mis-guidance there

i wouldnt mind using source if i werent so damn lazy and kept track of what i have and have not installed

rpm -q is a godsend :P

thanX (again)

the strange thing is, is that UT2003 runs fine on my system, and its an OpenGL game. ohh well.

thanx again for the help.
Source can be done with RPM's.

How? Liar!

No, really. Check out www.freshmeat.net and look for:
checkinstall

It will take an ordinary source tarball and turn it into an RPM for your system to gobble up and add to the rpm database.



Whew, it's late.

Cool
