Just installed yet another FC5 on the other machine. 873MB of updates on 
dialup, but thankfully I'd saved the /var/cache/apt/archives from the other 
FC5 installs, so only had to suffer 496MB of downloads. Apart from some sort 
of transaction error when the updates finished, which I was unable to save as 
I got a power out. We'll forget about the error. It was something to do with 
pixbuf loader.

Anyway FC5 booted up ok when the power came back, and I ran apt-get update 
again just to check out whether everything was ok. I've got a big bunch of 
deletes from apt-get update, and the last entry is.
W: There are multiple versions of "librsvg2" in your system.

True. Looking in synaptic I have libsrvg2#2.14.2-1, and 
libsrvg2#2.14.4-1.fc5.1 .

/usr/lib shows librsvg-2.so.2 pointing to librsvg-2.so.2.14.4

Is it safe to just remove the earlier librsvg2#2.14.2-1 version from the 

There were no 3rd party repo's active when I did the updating, and both 
packages are listed as from (download.fedora.redhat.com)
