Did you add a *really* long delay, like 60-120 seconds or so?

A link is in the mail. I do not have unlimited bandwidth available on
that server, so I would appreciate it if you kept the link for yourself.

Even if it had not been broken, the RPM's that were available through
that link were hopelessly outdated (something like nut-1.2.1 if I
remember correctly). Someone from SuSE used to frequent the development
forum regularly and kept fairly recent RPM's available through the SuSE
services for development versions. However, I haven't seen him lately on
the mailinglist anymore and he does not respond to e-mails either.

Yes, but never took the time to familiarize myself with it. The demand
for newer SuSE RPMs has been quite limited.

Best regards, Arjen
