My intention was to do a compile and link and build the rpm's of a particular so called production release (of RHEL).
Use the rpm's to install and thereby have a more stable Linux with the leading edge software.
But after reading the fine print on the web pages of Redhat-Fedora, Sun-Opensolaris, Novell-OpenSuSe,
and Ubuntu-Debian and
reading several blog posts about the proprietary binaries in each system and claims by one corporation about another's proprietary binary state and
searrching in vain for the simple How-TO at each site (all 8) for a make world concept,
that creates the production release binaries exactly as the company does,
I can only conclude that there is no way to do that (not even one source at a time) and
that they are all proprietary binaries and
as corporations go, are pathological and hence lie when the lies are part of the business plan and /or
used in a marketing effort to assure customers that they are the best or
used to debunk the competition's statements or actions.
I also believe they are all in violation of the GPL and on the edge of conspiracy to defraud the public.
So nothing new under the Sun. Corporations were created to avoid being responsible in any moral or ethical sense, and to detach from human conditions and the reality of life and death, pain and suffering, and social growth for the betterment of life on planet earth.
I should have known better than to belief yet another scam.
