Also if you need an older version, if you know the version number, change the version of the link above and insert '/obs/' in the path. They're all still there, I just don't want to spend the time to create an html doc to get at the old stuff while it's still changing.


Warning EXPERIMENTAL (and very cool!):

This is the make-based installer/uninstaller system. The sandbox installer/uninstaller is itself the application but you can potentially get yourself into trouble installing into the system directories. Keep a backup you can live with if you mess with stuff like /etc or /usr/lib and stuff.


If you install into the system folders, you need to change ownership to root:root foe each folder created. This feature has been added, but hasn't undergone extensive testing yet. Most likely the problem is solved.
