SuSE 6.4 is not something I am able to directly support -- but I _do_ know
that supporting SuSE 6.4 requires a great deal of modifications to our RPM in
order to get working. SuSE 7.1 and 7.2 are much better and much easier to
support. However, I can't really expect anyone to upgrade for my
So, if you think you're up to trying to make the existing source RPM rebuild
cleanly on SuSE 6.4, you have my blessing. I can help in a limited way --
limited because, as I said, I do not possess SuSE 6.4.
