So, does this mean it works now or not ? David, with the deepest
respect, you are not very good at providing the correct information you
have been asked for, namely detailed steps, detailed failure messages,
detailed versions of your packages/distributions. This is going to be my
last response to you, if I feel that you are not providing the correct
Further, just because somebody renames and rebuilds something, does not
mean it is THE SAME as the original. The Debian folks might be applying
patches, as we do in Fedora and Red Hat/CentOS. That is the thing with
free software, just because something sounds or looks similar, does not
mean it is! Hence, the requirement for detailed package names and
versions and distribution versions.
