I mirror the updates from ibiblio.org and it has no short symlinks to
the real names either. I was under the impression that SuSE
discontinued this 8.3 frontalobotomy some while ago, obviously not
quite. There's no patch description there (yet).
I find manually adding any new packages to a simple list and using rpm
-UvhF `cat list` is very much faster and more reliable. If anyone wants
the list (for 8.0) and some short scripts with it email me. YOU is
wasting more time than it saves. Relieing on those patch files being
present as well as accurate seems to be too dangerous to me.
