Just as an update to my previous reply..

OES uses SLES 9 as a base, so if you have OES use the packages from:

OES 2 uses SLES 10 as a base I believe, but I have not tested it myself. You 
can find SLE 10 packages at:

The spec file error you reported has been fixed in cvs and will be part of 
the 1.1.8 release (if there is one)

FreeRADIUS Version 2.0 (still in beta) uses difference file names for most of 
the configuration, so the fix does not apply to it.

Unless you have a particular reason to build your own rpms (Adding Oracle 
support for example, which I cannot distribute on the openSUSE Build 
Service) then I recommend you use my prebuild rpms to save yourself the 
trouble. If you add the repository to YaST/rug/zypper you will automatically 
get updated rpms when I release them also. Please report any problems with 
the packages on the build service to me directly, or back to this list.
