yes, but then hypothetically...that means i have to recompile whatever i change. i use Fedora Core 3.. so basically, i'm lazy and wait for rpm's to be made so then i install the rpm and booyah, updated whatever. lol also if i could change options to accomplish what i want, i would rather do that as i've had little to no experience editing the programs i use. however, i do know how to make a program from the source, so trying sounds fun.
thanks lol, that takes away a lot of the curiousity. even though his code now becomes useless lol
