i assumed something like this was going on. but after a quick check,
i'm still curious:
1) who's the fedora packager for sdcc? "rpm -qi sdcc" doesn't seem to
refer to a particular person. it lists packager simply as "fedora
2) is there a way to find out what package it was conflicting with,
and how? i imagine once i learn who the packager is, that part will
be easy to figure out.
And such a directory is a standard part of the Fedora sdcc package:
rpm -ql sdcc
ah, i hadn't even noticed that. yes, that should solve the problem,
