[PlanetCCRMA] different versions of pd at different locations at ccrma repo

currently there should be 0.40.3 of pd-extended available. this page


says so and correctly points to the file. However this page


cites as an example the pd-extended installer as "yum install pd- 

Doing so installs an older pd-extended version (0.39) and also  
doesn't install the startup info to load the externals. - When I  
proceeded to the first page (puredata.info) the location properly  
downloads version 0.40.3 and with yum it would install the externals  
etc etc. However it doesn't install an executable file of pd that I  
would find.
My question is, what is the point of these 2 versions? Also I wasn't  
able (yet) to get the externals working (of 0.39). But I admit I have  
a whole lot of other problems with sound on Fedora 10 that I didn't  
search thoroughly.
