Les, with honesty and without offending you: If you look over the above
lines, a compressed view of your last post (and try the same with your
previus posts), you might notice that you are continously claiming from
others to work in their leisure time to support your needs or wishes,
and you are doing that in a non-constructive, uninspiring way and not
respecting other's work. Open Source development doesn't work that way.
If you are missing documentation at jpackage.org, offer your help and
your leisure time to improve it.

And from your postings I conclude that you would better switch to a
distribution which is dedicated to run out of the box, e.g. Ubuntu,
CentOS and perhaps SuSE.

I give up
Peter
