Jon, I just tried this and I'm getting a blank "Postinstall script
errors" page. The only two packages that should have been installed
gcc: C compiler upgrade helper
glib: Gnome C function library (1.2 sources)
(both of which are selected due to a setup.exe bug)
A brief glance at your new code seems to show that this is not intended
behavior. Do you have any idea why this is happening?
