Comment 8 Mike A. Harris 2005-11-28 19:30:04 EST
XFree86-4.3.0-98.EL rpms built for RHEL3 U7 are temporarily available for
download and testing at the following URL:


Please download a copy right away, even if you can't test them right away,
as I have limited disk quota, and the files will be removed to make space
for other things soon.

Setting status to "MODIFIED", and waiting for testing feedback from
bug reporter.
