If You want to try it there is
file provided with new installer (Makeself by Loki).
The linamc-install.sh needs to be made executable
after downloading. It can be accomplished
in many ways For example from the command line:
chmod +x linamc-install.sh or from a "GUI Explorer" by changing
the permission "Enter" or "Executable" to active.
Just run it and it will do all the job !
Now installer detects previous LinAMC's version and backups it.
Please, drop me a mail if you found it useful or if
you have some sugestions
and other ideas to implement.
If you like to compile LinAMC your self, please get sources as well.
