Additional info:

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.
Comment 2 Benny Amorsen 2008-10-23 09:36:59 EDT
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.
