Just a note - I've added this to bug #30's dependency list.

Secondly, although we really should update procps before LFS-4.0 (our version is
ridiculously stale), we shouldn't do it yet because shortly after the release,

Does anybody have a brown paper bag I could borrow ?

It appears Robert and I cleaned up stuff a bit too much
and procps lost it's VERSION string, so -V doesn't work
in the tarball I released earlier today.

Also, it appears the release has awoken some long sleeping
patches, which I'll read and (if they work) integrate into

Expect patches and maybe even a fixed 2.0.8 tarball soon...

If you have any procps bugs or patches, please mail the procps team:

        procps-list at redhat.com




So hopefully we can go to the next release (which it appears should be soon)
well in time for LFS-4.0 [I know Gerard said don't do package updates but I feel
this is a special case due to the old version being fairly out of date]
