        I tried to install version 3.6.24-2 (the one I found on PPCLinux site), but it complains about failed dependencies (krblibs-so.3).
I found (1.1.x), but LPRng it wants (1.2.x) version, which I can't find anywhere for PPC. Does YellowDog has some RPM's that can help? Which version do you run?
