And what, pray tell, is the point of that? unless to demonstrate
Surely RunRev 4 needs to function on the Linux distros of 'today';
rather like RunRev 4
doesn't work on Mac OS 10.2; a Mac OS of 'yesterday'.
And, frankly. I doubt that many users and would-be users of RunRev on
be bothered to mess around with the sort of thing I successfully trashed
machines with in 1999!
Wouldn't it be sensible to find a 2 year old 'general' Linux rather than
going back to
Let's say a Debian release from mid-2008 ????
