Valdis.Kletnieks@vt.edu replied to me.  I'm sending this personally and to
the list.  Again I can't keep up with the list, so if Mr./Ms. Kletnieks or
anyone else has further advice or questions, please contact me directly.

directory

Oh I see, two many people.  After fixing that, I see a list of
module-init-tools. Hmm, modutils-2.4.21-18.src.rpm is indeed newer
than SuSE 8.1.  Downloading it now and will try it after sleeping.

I guess it's just luck that Red Hat 9 had a sufficiently new modutils.

I have it configured as a module.  I guess it will be fixed automatically
when modules start working.

All except the DNS error, which came up again while I was checking out the
rest of this.  I don't think post-halloween will get here tonight.
