    Question famd missing

    Dear fellow OS fans,

    I'm trying to run /usr/bin/fileschanged, but this requires a running famd - and where the heck is that daemon on openSuSe 11.1? I've installed all what matches "fam":
    # zypper se fam
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    S | Name       | Summary                                               | Type
    i | fam        | File Alteration Monitoring Daemon                     | package
    i | fam-devel  | Include Files and Libraries Mandatory for Development | package
    i | libgio-fam | A Library with Convenient Functions Written in C      | package
    and neither "famd" nor its startup script is found:
    # whereis famd
    famd: /usr/man/man8/famd.8.gz /usr/share/man/man8/famd.8.gz
    # ls -ld /etc/init.d/fam*
    ls: No match.
    # zypper se famd
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    No packages found.
    nor does rpm knows anything more than the manual page:
    # rpm -qal | grep famd
    Searching the openSuSe forums did not reveal anything helpful, either.

    Any clues as to where it got lost...?
