Hi,

An Erlang noob here. I am trying to get cean working under my existing 
Erlang install in Ubuntu Feisty. I installed the cean library, set up 
the export commands in the erl script, cean seems to be installed 
properly, but when I do type cean:available()., I get this instead of 
the package listing:

1> cean:available().
["    _uacct = \"UA",
 "    urchinTracker();",
 "  <img alt=\"Valid HTML 4.01 Strict\" src=\"/images/valid",

 "  <img alt=\"debian\" src=\"/images/debian",

 "  <img alt=\"yaws\" src=\"/images/yaws",
 "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"",

 "<div class=\"alert\"><img src=\"/images/404.gif\" align=\"middle\" 
hspace=\"0\" vspace=\"0\"></img>",
 "<div class=\"content\">"|...]

However, cean:search seems to be working properly, but when I try to 
install a found package through cean:install, it says the package is not 
found:

3> cean:search("mysql").
[{"mysql","MySQL native driver"}]
4> cean:install(mysql).
error: mysql not found in download
error

Any pointers?

Thanks,
Vamsee.
