It runs just fine on FC3 (that's what I run).

Make sure you install squid (rpm) when you install Fedora.
Install the zapper as per the instructions (i.e. copy the script somewhere
like /usr/local/bin, chmod a+rx the script, add config line to squid.conf).

The formal installation instructions are here:



Any difficulties, ask me.

Apology: the lack of RPM is my fault. I was sent a .spec file long ago and
still haven't made the time to implement it.
