Don't worry ! I'm on the list since 15th-Aug .. and that the 2nd time
I'm posting.. I'm __interested__ in the job done here .. even if I don't
use Debian yet

Humm! I dare think they are at least linux specific..
With a non-debian distribution, attempting

Agree. And, this could be risky ! But according to a previous answer, I understood
that dpkg were evolving in order to be grafted on alien linux-system and was
pointed then to the file
The building and installation of this package were successfull, but I have the

True :) If someone's interrested in, there (for example) are
ftp.univ-lyon1.fr/pub/gnu and ftp.jussieu.fr/pub/gnu mirroring the project..
But sorry, I'm not psychotic (yet :) and can't know where to find the files
I'm looking for in such places. Whereas with Debian, I can use the
debian-search engine to locate these packages.
==> Sure ! I should put the Debian distrib on this box :)
Thanx for your time and attention, regards, Max
