Hi Markus

Thanks for your testing. I had infact updated the spec file on the openSUSE 
buildservice for 1.1.4 when it was released but had not remembered to commit 
these changes to cvs. I have now done so.

I am glad you had no further problems with the spec file after fixing these 
issues. I go to allot of trouble to make sure that the spec builds cleanly 
on all released versions of SUSE, although the initial spec work was infact 
done by SUSE themselves and I just modified it. (SUSE has been shipping 
freeradius since the epoc)

I don't actually currently build branch_1_1 on the Build Service, but the 
latest release as well as CVS head snapshots (which I update every week or 
so) are available in the network:aaa project. I myself run SLES10 in 
production and have customers running FreeRADIUS on SUSE versions as far 
back as 8 so while all testing is appreciated I don't expect you will find 
any further issues on SLES10. If you do manage to find something I will buy 
you a beer next LinuxTag! ;-)
