Hi Folks,

Is anyone running WordPerfect on Debian?  If so then how did you install it?

I have obtained two Corel Linux WordPerfect 8.0 tarballs (guilg00.gz and
guilguk0.gz) which I would like to install on my Debian 3.0 system.  I have
followed the instructions and copied them into a temp directory (/opt/wp80)
then used "tar xvfz" to unpack them.  Amongst the unpacked files is one
called "Runme" which I ran ("./Runme") as root.   It asks me if I have
untared all the files.  I reply "y".  It says "Extracting files... Please
wait.".  It then comes up with an error message "Linux 2.4.18-bf2.4 not
certified.  Continue?" to which I reply "y".  I then get literally
screenfulls of error messages about files not being found.  The error
messages scroll past far to fast to read but I managed to catch the final
screen's worth and have put it below. Anyone have a clue what is going
wrong?

Thanks,

Ian.
