Hi dinkypumpkin and many thanks for the detailed reply.  
The reason I didn't post here first is that I have found the License problem with a couple of 
other rpms so assumed it was more to do with OS than this list.  Also everytime I post here I 
seem to irritate somebody albeit unintentionally.
Will try your suggestions and report back.
Many thanks,
