I have had times when rpm does work very conveniently however. Usually 
it's with simple little packages that don't require much else to 
function. But it always seems like the most important stuff to be 
upgraded always gives me the most trouble. *sigh* Anyways, I did learn 
quite a bit from this whole ordeal. Don't worry about being harsh, I 
didn't take it personally  :) Besides I did do something pretty stupid, 
I just didn't know it.
