Hello, I'm not a Linux guru or nut but also I am not affraid of the command line or getting my hands dirty to get things done. I have used Linux Distrobutions on and off the past 6 years for various specific applications. I just installed Xandros Desktop Ver 4.0 Professional Beta 1 on a spare machine at work. I tried installing tn5250_0.16.5-5woody1_i386.deb which installed in prior 2.5 and 3.0 versions of Xandros Linux. When I try now I get the following error. "Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that the package is simply not installable and a bug report against that package should be filed. tn5250: Depends: libssl0.9.6 but it is not installable Broken packages Done." My guess is that the Verision 4.0 of Xandros is using a newer version of libssl that itr doesn't like. I have not tried compiling the source. If it's just a matter of doing a "make" then I'll give it a go otherwise I may just pass on it. Currently I have TN5250J running from a script file but not through the browser yet. I'd like to use TN5250 as it has a smaller footprint. One side note is that in Version 4.0 of Xandros TN5250 is no longer listed as an app to install via CD or Xandros Networks (Xandros online Apps directory).
