The only results I see from Google refer to actual jet engines, so I ask again,
where does this come from?
I know what you mean.
I avoid using commands/tools/utilities that aren't part of the Fedora distributions
when answering queries on the mailing list.
The exception would be commands/tools/utilities which are easily installed from other
well-known repos. I try and
take care to mention the repo they can been installed from.
I try my best not to keep people guessing. And if I do, I give the links to where
something can be found.
One of the not so nice things I've seen happen is people, not the most experienced,
install non-standard stuff on their systems and then forget they've done it. And
then they complain when stuff that worked for them before no longer works as an
upgrade changes a library that is no longer compatible.
