Well I do feel guilty that I am not contributing by testing out the CD
My only excuse can be that it took possibly 9 hours to download, over
different sessions at different places. And also I have not yet been able
build the whole system (from any source) successfully yet; although I am
with Unix/Linux and regularly reconfigure my Linux kernel for various

The last CD did not build and I think that some tool versions were wrong.
I cleared out all the old versions using commands like rpm -q -a | grep
and then removing anything detected; I am pretty sure I removed everything.

So any feed back from some one who can confirm that the latest CD is OK
will be very welcome,

Thanks, Jack
