Hi Wilson (or Carl ?),
My installation runs on UNIX, but I am not so firm on UNIX.
If nobody else of the IzPack-team can help you may be you can show
self into the sources and debug it with eclipse to solve the problems.
I assume you will have no problem to do it. However, there is a discription
how to do it in the docu.
We will be happy if you send us the solution.
I assume you mean Red Hat...

Some of use fait all the time with docu. Sometimes it is problematically to
write the docu about something self implemented, you know. We are open  

Examples are such a thing... I have propagate some panels and custom  
 from my pool. Now I have heard more than one times that this or that or
something other is missing or not good or how can someone implement it in
such a way or my code is bad documented or what ever...
Therefore I will be a little bit more coutious to propagate something. Most
I have not so much time to make something full common.
I assume that other developer are also learned...

Search old entries are a problem, I know.

We will be not angry with you if you remove your trailer. I have also
somthing like you, but I remove it on mailing lists...
