    Well, it does take some minutes to get installed from hypervm panel, but it installs really.
    Contact Rus if you have some issues with this.

    yea i dont interupt it, i let it do its thing, for liek 10 minutes and firefox just says Error Connection Timed Out and that the server rest the connection because it took so long, i did contact Rus, he said he would fix it and to try it in 10 minutes, i did and it isnt working as of now, im just manually installing now through an sh script file but id rather have the package :(

    id ask for more support, but i dont feel like bothering them right now :|
