Re: Fedora Extras on x86_64



Jeremy,
	I've been running x86_64 exclusively for a while now.  I find the only
thing I need to build from source is the kdemultimedia package,
everything else _I_ need is available by Matthias at
http://www.freshrpms.net - scripts could be written to automatically
generate x86_64 pacakges from source rpms but I wouldn't want to write
the dependency handling stuff.  Example, use the atd to download a bunch
of packages via ftp.  When done cd into the directory and do a

for x in *.src.rpm
do
	rpmbuild --rebuild $x
done


Regards,
Nick
