> Rawhide does not have 5.4.2, unfortunately.
5.4.2 was submitted to Rawhide one month ago! Anyway, I update F9 net-snmp when more bugs come.
You are right, Rawhide has 5.4.2. For some reason my laptop won't pick it up with yum though. When I look at the repository in a web browser, the file is clearly there.
Anyway, /usr/sbin/snmpd depends on librpm, and librpm has changed soname between F9 and Rawhide. I guess I'll have to wait for F10.
net-snmp-5.4.1-19.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9.
net-snmp-5.4.1-19.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
