Hello, of course i considered to upgrade the system. The only reason are the 10% of additional installed packages. In other words my employer wouldn't pay the necessary time to rebuild/upgrade the system.

Hi, for an additional socket there is '-a' argument of running syslogd. Solution would be a changed init script of syslogd. Further investigations shows me dependencies of sed's '-i' argument. I work around it for rpms specs with a patch file. Also a changed init script is necessary. But what isn't working is, building shared objects with libtool. because of version mismatch ... haven't more time to look at it. I tried to build statically and have some rpms now but i am unsure of this statically version expect for higher memory consumption. > Other than that, I agree with Solar. You should upgrade to 2.0 rather > than backporting things to 1.1. Is an old school type of employer that says, do not change the running system, and i agree ;) Thanks Stanislav
