This is fixed in 0.99.11. I'll be posting a 0.99.11 update for FC2 
shortly. If I send you a pointer to the new rpm would you be willing 
to do a test install before I push it publically?
Comment 2 Chan Min Wai 2005-01-06 20:29:06 EST
Sure do,
You can send the files to dcmwai at ocesb dot com dot my

At the current time we are using the patch RPM :)
Comment 3 John Dennis 2005-01-10 14:06:56 EST
Actually the latest rev is 0.99.13, which should have the fix you're
looking for. I have rebuilt it for FC2, you can find a link to this
rpm in my private area.


If you could try installing this and let me know your results I'd like
that before I push this out into the FC2 channel. FWIW, I built the
virually identical rpm for FC3 and tested it locally without problems. 
Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 11:48:01 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
