Re: RPM Unpacking??



Thanks for the URL, a small question though, 3.0.0.5e is the version is
should get right? Just happen to think it's kinda strnage 3.0.0.5c is more
than 10 times the size of 5e... Was 5e just way better compressable or is
there a lot removed since version 5c?

Kind regards,

Ferry van Steen
