Andreas, i seem to remember Roderick, or one of those involved with, eCS saying that they were not able to change anything with the base OS/2 because of the licence they have with IBM so they are stuck with the old installer.

I know you are pushing the RPM/YUM installer, I also know that there has been some debate about that and I am yet to be convinced that we, as end users, actually need it.  So far zip and warpin are more that adequate to do the job if installing applications on OS/2.  Using either of those I only need one file on a usb stick to install the same application on all the workstations I supervise and maintain so the question is, why reinvent the wheel?

I do agree with you that Mensys would have a potential market if they prepared a CD of all the updated addons and made that available separately.
