You are right, but rpmfind.net has packages for every rpm
distribution you can find. It has to be easy to get only
the packages for the exact distribution you are using.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
