I guess I succeeded installing it. Now trying to run like this
sh ../../imagename.image (in .../bin/) gives ' 
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory / could not 
find display driver vm-display-x11; wither: / -check that 
/udr/local/lib/squeak/4.4.7-2357/ exists or / ...'
There's no in the folder from the installation, but 
there is a so.vm-display... so copying this to have the '.so' at the 
end... Get the same error. I'm almost giving up.

Thanks for any help.
