ok, I never used apt-get before so this is good time to get into it :) I
will try this.

Yes i know. its just that i am still setting up my modem connection in
Ubuntu (taking me ages) so i am wrinting from OSX and i cannot remember
the error, I should have pasted it into a text file. I will do it next time.
and this reminds me that i cannot try the app-get until i solve the
modem problem ... great.
