Doh! :) OK, so I wanted to install into a .rebol, just to keep it hidden, and I tell rebol to install into /home/kolla/.rebol, it creates this dir and put the binary into it, then it wants to write a .rebol file, and fails since this is already the name of the directory above. The error message it gives is then that it fails to create binary /home/kolla/.rebol/rebol which really is utter nonsense, the thig it fails to create is the text file /home/kolla/.rebol If I tell it to install on /home/kolla/rebol and at same time make sure there is no /home/kolla/.rebol it works ok. Personally I would prefer that everything got stuck into a .rebol dir and the .rebol file could be in there with a more obvious name. But hey, that's just me :) -- kolla
