Thank you so much for the article.

I'm having some difficulty on my installation, basing mine on comments from these discussion boards. I've done a clean install of RHL 7.3 on a separate machine, and installed CFMX there. I've created the tarball, and transfered it in several ways to my OS X machine -- once thru an intermediary FTP server (separate offices) and once through a laptop. (in both cases we FTPed the file to an IIS5 ftp on W2k).

I'm getting errors at OS X installation, such as "gnutar: Child died with signal 11" or "gnutar: error exist delayed from previous errors." Once, it made it through (some large portion), but then died.

Suggestions? I'm going to try reinstalling on the linux box, with the assumption the install went bad. is it alright to move the cfmxinst.bin file across various (MS) filesystems?

    Couple of things:

    1) This may not be related, but CFMX has some problems with RH 7.3. I don't know if they are install or runtime problems. I know it works with RH 7.2, so if you have that, you can avoid potential problems.

    2) If you have a separate machine and the necessary hardware/software (network, IP connection, etc). you can use either NFS or FTP to transfer between the Linux box and the Mac. You don't really need to compress/decompress the files -- it just makes the transfer faster and cleaner for the dropbox technique I used in the article. The important thing is to replicate the Linux directory tree on the OS X system.

    3) I always got the "gnutar: error exist delayed from previous errors." error message. I originally had an image of the Terminal window (with the error) in the article -- when I deleted it, I should have mentioned the error.

    I just did a gnutar (Jaguar) and here are the bottom lines:

    gnutar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
    [TiBook:/volumes/FireWire 160 GB] cfmx%

    Hope this helps
