=========

If you can get it to work Fred. I've had to keep an earlier version
handy for sax2, as the last two releases, one in Jan & the Feb release,
with the same version/build numbers by the way, would error out and put
my monitor into a suspend state. Dropping down to init 3 and running
sax2 comes up with this error:
sh: line1: 16xxx Aborted /usr/X11R6/lib/sax/sysp.pl -s 3d

then sax startup and no video signal. I can drop back to the Dec build,
same version/build number and not have any problems. The changlelog
shows fixes, etc in the latest available uploaded in this month, but
it's a mystery to me why there's no change in the build number nor why
they went backwards with the perl-TermReadLine-Gnu rpm (1.14.2 to
1.14.1-1).

Just be sure to have an earlier version to fall back too, should you
install these!

regards,
Lee
