Hi. I just installed cean-otp_R11B_linux-amd64.tar.gz, for the first time.
There are a couple of glitches... first of all,
the start.sh script doesn't work on amd64, but that's fixed easily by making
the arch detection thing
output amd64 instead of x86. I.e.

arch() {
    case `uname -m` in
    i[3456]86) echo x86 ;;
    i86pc) echo x86 ;;
    x86) echo x86 ;;
    x86_64) echo x86  ;; # amd64

Change that last line. I suppose you knew about this already, given the

The next weird thing concerns upgrades inside the shell. For example:
:~/cean/R11B$ ./start.sh
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.5.4 [source] [64-bit] [async-threads:0]

Eshell V5.5.4  (abort with ^G)
1> cean:upgrade(os_mon).
+ os_mon md5=<<23,146,73,183,178,80,252,187,133,113,44,5,178,69,231,100>>
2> cean:upgrade(os_mon).
+ os_mon md5=<<23,146,73,183,178,80,252,187,133,113,44,5,178,69,231,100>>
3> cean:upgrade(cean).
cean: no newer package available

Am I reading this right? Shouldn't os_mon be properly upgraded after the
first command, and
shouldn't therefore the second command output "os_mon: no newer package
available"? What does
cean:upgrade/1 actually do, or should do?
