Thanks for taking time and looking into this!

I don't know if you checked the thread I refered but they specifically 
asked about you looking at this and I posted that I had asked you.  If 
you do build an APT and SYnaptic version that has your RPMS 
preconfigured, that would be awesome!  I really like this PCLOS 
distro...it's light weight, comes with LiceCD so folks can test it 
without commitment...Is snappier than MDK and everything worked out of 
the box. They have some apps...Ardour, Jack, etc but to have access to 
your RPM volume would make my decision to swap an easy one.
