Perhaps, but it is not clear if the original guy will be

Thanks, how does one create a local repo? What is special about it?
(Putting the file part, I can understand). But what makes for a local
It's as easy as installing and running 'createrepo' on a directory with
package(s) there. I keep a local repo of all the packages I ever install or
update which are not on the original install DVD. This avoids downloading stuff
over and over to each machine. If change yum.conf to keep the packages, install
them in a shared directory, and then run createrepo when something changes.

How does it know the F package should be overridden? Because of the
version number? If not, should I call the rpm/program something else?
Such as fvwm-patched?
Many thanks again!
