Hi Everyone,

patching oes is a bit of a confusion anyway, what puzzles me now is that I can mirror oes patches from two (different?) sources at novell:

+=========================3D====================== ===3D===============+

+================+=========3D===================== ====3D+================+

Big question: what's the difference (if any) and which source should be used? Any ideas welcome, as well as vendor knowledge :-)

cheers, Lothar
