yes I have tried killev, and even *gasp* rebooting - to ensure there
were no locked files getting in my way.
# Perhaps use red-carpet's Verify Packages to ensure you have everythin

I did this just now - and redcarpet has told me that the package database
# Wait a minute, is that a "snapshot", as in not the Beta release. If it
