Best approach is to grab the src.rpm for dbus-glib, add the patch into
the spec file, add '1test' to the end of the Release: tag, then build
yourself a new RPM. You can install this patched RPM without worrying
about breaking any RPM dependancies in the process - ie no need for
You can later easily revert to original Fedora PRM build by using the
'rpm -Uvh --oldpackage dbus-glib-X.Y.Z.rpm' from the Fedora YUM repo.
