  3. better redoe offline_installer script after an autoupdate of ghostscript (or any other package dealing with typefaces) or you might stay without any text in firefox (or most other mozilla based browsers).

  5. I don’t understand. Do you mean that someone has to install other software while on internet. That is why Linux may not beat MS in the near future here in Africa where you have to wait for 2 hours to download a 20mb file from the internet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
