Re: Hollywood

I can't see how lintian would be required, myself, based on what its use case is. And since Hollywood itself is just a script that runs a lot of those other programs in their own little tiled windows, it should be cross-platform already---if those other programs have the same names in the other dist...

Yes, downloading the map tiles for a region, so I don't have to be connected to the Net to use the map. It downloaded the region very slowly, but eventually finished. It's worth having some kind of network usage monitor running, so you can monitor these type of things. Maybe whatever map view you ar...

OK, try this MX 15 one: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxE7w ... 1hhYmVicnM
