Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

On Fedora/RHEL/CentOS etc there really is an RPM called "chkconfig", and
if you "Requires: <package>", dependency resolution will pull in the
correct package for you.

SuSE seem to call the package "aaa_base" which makes no sense at all to

Does SuSE (or the others) pull in the correct package if you require
specific files instead of package names?
