Tux Machines (TM)-specific
It was a nice evening. I started Rpmdrake 2007 "the long way" (Applications -> System -> Configuration -> Packaging -> Install, Remove & Update Software), then I looked into what video & audio applications could I add from PLF (with all the codecs).
I selected various things like VLC, gxine, codecs and plugins (with "plf" in the filename), then I accepted to start the installation.
At some point, a repository failed. I changed to another PLF mirror. Updates, stuff, etc.
In the meantime, I wanted to check if the meaning of the several green and blue icons in Rpmdrake 2007 are documented, so I clicked the "Help" button. The help window showed up as a blank, frozen window. Geez. I didn't like it.
