RE: kpackage

The src.rpm was the one corresponding to the rpm installed, that is
To tell the truth, the only modification I made to the spec file was
setting the kpackage value to 1 at the beginning of the file.
I'll investigate further but if you (or anyone on the list) have
specific information as to what else needs modifying, please let me

Eaxctly which kdeadmin src.rpm did you install, and what changes did you
make to it? It appears as through the set of changes were incomplete, as
the files /usr/sbin/kpackage and /etc/security/console.apps/kpackage
have not been "installed" into the RPM, yet the spec file says that they
should be there.
