Exactly that, I was looking at the name as shown by ls, and typing it exactly 
& got a "file not found", but a copy/paste from that ls listing and it worked.  
Oddly, in both cases the K or S in the link name was lower case, in both my 
typing, and in the copy/paste echo displayed.  Strange...

[root coyote sbin]# rpm -V ConsoleKit
[root coyote sbin]# rpm -q ConsoleKit

And to cover all the bases:
[root coyote sbin]# rpm -V `rpm -q ConsoleKit`
[root coyote sbin]#

Now, the fedora kernel disabled selinux, and I just did a touch /.autorelabel 
before I rebooted last, and went to work on some furniture for the hour plus 
that takes since there is nearly 2TB of drives here.


Thanks Patrick.

Cheers, Gene
