Hi Vincenzo,

1. Are you really certain your machine is a blade center running IBM  
PowerPC 970 CPUs and not Ix86 (Intel or AMD)?
2. Exactly what is the error message you get? ("doesn't work" is  
rather vague)

That's the default location of RPM software nowadays, and we've  
started to comply with it :-)
