Hi again,

looks fine, how to get revision 29 see my previous mail.

Wait with a new install. That really should not be necessary.

rpm -e the atrpm modules and to install the mercurial repo most likely
will all clean up, if you didn't copy stuff manually around or have
compiled a custom kernel with some modules built in.
