Thanks for this, Richard. I haven't tried building packages before this
week, so you should have better luck. For this I'm using a laptop ~2007
running sl6 with ATrpms repos and some packages from epel and remi.
I've had Axel's myth 0.25 running on it since RC, just to see what had
changed from 0.24 and would affect my use profile. I don't really want
to build routinely for myself, but in the absence of up-to-date builds
from either ATrpms or RPM_Fusion I thought I would have a go. Now I
have the build components in place I can do a little more exploring.
