not to diminish Gerry's problems with SuSE 6.4. However, I honestly can't say
that I found a single broken package, yet. I upgraded from 6.3 to 6.4 pretty
early on after it was released. When I upgraded I installed reiserFS on my
machine. This of course required backing up and reformatting my drives. All
I had to do is to play back my directories and go for the
upgrade. Not only did it go smoothly but for me netscape worked right away.
Perhaps it was just luck, and I certainly can't speak about the FAX packages
as I don't use them. Perhaps it has more to do with how the system is set up
at a user's PC to begin with or perhaps even hardware problems.
Well, just my 2 cents worth.
