Thanks Kam, I have the lappy (the F7 machine) booting right now.  Now if yumex 
could get out of its own way... That thing isn't just slow, its been frozen 
on primarysqlite.bz2 for a good 5 minutes now.  But it quit just as if it was 
alive.  Pirut I don't know how to control, yum hangs if I enable that repo, 
and smart doesn't know about it.

found it with yumex, installed it, but no new updates are showing in smart.  
That seems odd.

Cheers, Gene
