Ya but how can it work out that i have two versions of a libsdl lib installed?
How does RPM deal with that conflict? Were in the filesystem are these two things support so coexist.
It's all confusing and mysterious to me.
The only other thing that bugs me is the unbearable slowness of Yum. I know it's python and all, but I also use GUI python apps that feel nearly as fast as anything else.
This lead me to the original problem I had. I have a older machine that I use CentOS on as a desktop at work. It's very old, probably 300 mhz or whatnot.
Normally the speed is irritating, but it's mostly a glorified terminal so it's not a big deal.
But there was a bunch of updates flashing on that little red button and I decided I needed to update it.
I thought I gave myself enough time, but I underestimated the unbareable slowness of the beast and after a while I just plain ran out of time and had to cancel the upgrade.
A week later I was able to get back to it and lo it took me freaking 3-4 hours to resolve the issue. I work evenings and I didn't get finished with the stupid thing until like 4 or 5 AM in the morning.
(otherwise I like CentOS)
Maybe you (or someone, maybe I'll look at but I can't make any promises, it'll take me a few months to figure out this stuff as I am no programmer) need to rewrite the math-intensive portions or something in C or Pyrex and import it back into the program as a module. I expect that there is only certain functions that take up 90% of the time..
