Hi Stefan,

I highly suggest you to don't use the version. It contains some security bugs that are fixed by newer versions. You can use the 3.0 package that I have uploaded recently, to install it you have only to extract all files and copy somewhere, for example in /usr/local. After to execute IceCat you will need to use the `icecat' script present in the root of the tarball. In future a Debian package compatible with gNewSense will be distributed too. If somebody is interested to create packages for other packaging systems he/she is welcome.

  I wanted to install icecat but I found only a package packed by
lzma. After installing lzma I had to notify that my kernel is too old for
this package (installed four years ago). Because I do not want to install
a new kernel, I wanted to know whether it is possible to obtain the
package also in another compression mode (bzip2, gzip). A further question:
are there instructions available how to install the package? I downloaded
the beta-version which was packed with bzip2, but I could not
find out how to install this.

  With kind regards, Stefan Groote.
