Karl's troubleshooting software reminds me of the repair shops that
repair electronics by replacing parts until it works again. They
have no idea why the repair worked, or even if the part replaced was
the cause of the problem, or a symptom of another problem. For
example, if the final transistors are burned out on a transmitter,
you replace the transistors. This fixes the immediate problem, but
the problem will come back if the real problem is something like
high SWR on the antenna connection, or an intermittent short in the
co-ax cable.

One big part of Karl's problem is that he installs files from
non-RPM sources that overwrite installed files, and then updates
overwrite these files. Then he blames the updates for breaking
things. The kind of problem you would expect from someone that does
not understand how a package manager works.
