This time, this is really a problem with the width of the version
string, take a look:

(centos 3!)
httpd.i386                               2.0.52-32.2.ent.centos update          
httpd-suexec.i386                        2.0.52-32.2.ent.centos update          
kernel.i686                              2.6.9-55.0.2.EL        update          
kernel-smp.i686                          2.6.9-55.0.2.EL        update          
krb5-libs.i386                           1.3.4-49               update          
krb5-workstation.i386                    1.3.4-49               update          
mod_ssl.i386                             1:2.0.52-32.2.ent.cent update          
							^^^^^^^^

In my script, I have to get the full version string , how can I do ?

Thank you !
