Tweak RPM's 4.4

Tweak RPM's can be added to change a feature without disturbing the rest of the release. These are the ones added to S.L. 4.4

One of the goals of Scientific Linux is to be as close to the original vendor release of Enterprise Linux. But there are several things that people want to change, for one reason or another. In order to have both worlds we have created these tweak rpm's, more commonly known as SL rpm's. These rpm's can be added or removed to add or remove a feature. It is up the individual user to determine if they want a particular feature or not.

None of these packages are installed by default unless it is noted that they are.

SL_firefox_parentlock_fix

When a users home area is in AFS space, it is possible for firefox, thunderbird, and/or seamonkey to leave a lock file called .parentlock when they are closed. The user is then not able to restart firefox, thunderbird, and/or seamonkey until that lock file is removed. This puts in a startup script that removes the .parentlock lock file.

Who Needs This?
Anyone who has their home area in AFS space, and uses firefox, thunderbird, and/or seamonkey.
