I'm looking now... Right. Looking through the i386 update CD for empty dirs, I find the following: Several are not built for i386, so didn't go on the CD: * arcboot * atari-bootstrap * kernel-image-2.2.22-alpha * kernel-image-2.4.17-s390 * nvram * setsccserial Several were already on the r0 CDs for i386, so no update needed. The updates seem to be just other architectures catching up: * afterstep * colrconv * dwww * elk * ftape-tools * gcc * htmldoc * illuminator * libdbd-mysql-perl * nessus-core * nessus-libraries * postfix-tls kdenetwork doesn't seem to have been updated on i386 beyond 2.2.2-14, while the other arches are on 2.2.2-14.6. Checking the changelog, I'm not sure if this is correct or not. There were no i386 packages to go on the CD, so none did. Apart from (maybe) the kdenetwork issue I've noted (and that's nothing to do with the update CDs themselves), all the above is just fine. What may have confused you is that the script that generates the CDs is a little bit dumb - it generates the entire directory layout on every CD, regardless of whether that particular CD needs that directory to hold a file.
