Indeed, I should do better in basic math...

Ah, perfect, now it works fine.

I had originally tried to install 2.6, but my system is not the absolutely 
last-cry Linux, and after having reached a point where library version 
requirements would have forced me to upgrade my XFree (!), I decided to 
content myself with 2.4 - I can't afford to mess around too much with my 
box at the moment.
The developers will have good reasons for requiring brand-new versions of 
several auxiliary libraries and tools, but the downside might be that 
some people have to stay behind a bit and that it can be difficult to get 
the latest-and-greatest version of Lilypond running. However, I guess for 
an absolute newbie like me, 2.4 will be just as good - and then, Lilypond 
comes with an upgrade tool, as it seems.
