I'm glad to hear it worked for you. As for being confused with Caitlyn, I consider that an honor! She knows far more than I do about things Linux and Vector.
I don't see how my instructions would fit into Gslapt, but if some administrator wanted to put them in this forum's HowTo section, I have no objection.
They're of short-lived usefulness, however, because VL6 has Flash 10 installed and ready to use. VL6 has been really nice through the alphas, betas, and now Release Candidate(s) and the final release will be well worth installing. Not that there's anything wrong with 5.9 Standard. I use it every day on my laptop. I have VL6 on my older desktop and that computer works very speedily with VL6--definitely snappier than Windows XP on that same computer.
Have a great 2009!
