It will be a slow download here, as I'm tethering with my phone ATM, but I'm going for it anyway. Thanks so much for letting us know.

Edit. Dang, I saw this from my phone, and signed up, then couldn't download onto my phone, so hooked up the netbook (tethering), went to restart the download again, and now it is saying it's over. :(

I desperately need the .rpm and .deb both. Man, oh, man.

I could dropbox the rpm, if you want, about 40M. I think it ought to work, seems like the downloads were generic, and your sign-up ought to get you the support authorization. WDYT?

WDT??? That's what I'd like to know. Thanks on the .rpm, but I'd need to know, 4 p.m. who's time? Thanks.
Yeah, I never got an email, anything, after signing up. It could be the slow speed I'm on currrently, who knows ( like, half dialup, tethering).

40M=40 MB, the approximate size of the file, it's not a time. I didn't get an email, either, but that's about some code for free support, upgrades for a year. Nothing to do with functionality of the installed program. I say one who installed it say he went through the registration process for the program and was told it was already registered, so I take it that's part of the distributed package.

About the deb, the alien program claims to convert from rpm to deb and you could try that.

I saw where you had trouble with the Berserk_friends folder in the past. I'll pm you a link, in case.

Thanks so much. Maybe I can get it to work with CentOS 6.2 (the rpm), once I get it tried onto the netbook (i.e. if it works on the netbook).

Ah, 40MBs. I'm sorry, it looked like 4 p.m. from my phone screen (which right now is screwed to the hilt).

Thanks again, rolf, got it.

If you or other moderator want to exercise choice to delete this portion of this thread, that's fine.
