   How interesting! I had no idea that it was available. Here, on my 14.2
system I have:

$ rpm -v
RPM version

   I'd still prefer to run the .rpm through rpm2tgz for consistency with
everything else.

   I'm still trying to learn if refilled toner cartridges will work with the
Dell rebranded Xerox.
