That would be great! I recently updated through DAG from gramps-2.0.11-1.el4.rf to gramps-2.2.5-1.el4.rf and gramps would not load. I got a slew of error messages so just reinstalled the old one :(
I will need to probably update some dependencies, but yum update did not add or list them.

in 2.2.6 there is a media tool to let you do string replacement. So

to "/your/media/files" I can do it in one go using this tool . This is
