Just had to make this vs the existing Debian package:

No need to abandon probe-file if your just trying to see if a certain
*file* exists.  If you are trying to get a full path, that's what
truename is for.

If you want the other patches I currently have in the Debian package
vs 20050201 (previously posted to the list) again, please let me know.

Take care, and thanks for your work on Axiom!!!

BTW, is there an FC4 fix I can apply to the code, or does FC4 require
root disabling of certain randomization via

echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/randomize_va_space


May need a small 2.6.7 errata for ia64 and arm in any case.

Take care,
