some of those machines are all over the map.
the gnome stuff on some of our servers is from non-kickstart installs

Ok I will be rebuilding app02 later this afternoon. I will then
compare app02 with app04 as I installed some packages last night
thinking they were needed. If they aren't needed I will remove them
from app04 and app07 and see how those stand up. Then it will be

special as bapp01 but only just.
