This is just a public service announcement that a new oes-edir88 channel
has appeared through red-carpet from the update.novell.com server. I
want to advise you that these RPMs do *NOT* work out of the box like
they should, due to some bugs in the init scripts and whatnot. They will
work after some tweaking, but if you try to install these RPMs and do an
rcndsd restart, your eDirectory will stop working until you do those tweaks.

On another note, WTF is Novell thinking putting these up on the main
update site? They're just begging people to go "ooh, a new edir channel,
I'll install the packages" and then immediately hose up their
eDirectory. I hope they remove it until they fix the problems with these
