I'm pretty sure I did.  I recall messages scrolling by complaining about
not finding files.

Ok, I've got 7.3 lying around.  Perhaps this weekend...Are there any
'gotchas' with the RPM for 7.3?

I don't understand.

No, I didn't try it like that.  I tried just getting the example from to work and it would compile.  What I tried was (I found the
reference I needed in the Polyphony section after I sent my previous message):

\include ""
        \clef "treble"
        \key c \major
        \time 4/4
\context Voice = VA \apply #voicify-music \relative c'' {
c4 < { f d e } \\ { d c2 } > c4 < g' \\\ c, \\ f \\ d >

A shift, I guess.  The measure is all sixteenths.  The odd numbered notes
should be on the upper beam while the even ones should be on the lower beam.

I've attached it. (It is an adaptation/edition of the "Pedalexercitium" as
improvised by J.S. Bach and later written down by Krebs [sp?].  This
version is by a friend of mine who plays contrabass.)

Hmm, I don't have a PS printer.  I have an Epson Stylus Color 600.

Well, it seems that I found the relevant portion of the docs.  Not sure
what to suggest at this point.
