While the Grass rpm for fc4 complains of two unresolved Xorg type dependencies on my machine (bug report #5253), it appears to install and run fine on fc5 (kernel 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5, with all other Fedora updates available up to about two weeks ago applied) using --nodeps. This is not the case with the Grass rpm for fc5. Whether I try to install over the fc4 version, or remove the fc4 version first, the fc5 version will not install without --nodeps, and once installed it won't load - gis.m flashes on the screen very briefly and then grass dies.

Disregard the last comment.  My email program didn't word-wrap for some
reason and I only saw the first sentence.  Odd.
