NEVER NEVER NEVER write/create something in the system directory.

Re: What?
We're sorry that this user had a bad experience with BRU. The installation is a simple task that is controlled by an install script that creates a /bru directory, adds the executable to /bin, puts the man page where it belongs and then sets up device entries in an /etc/brutab file.


As for uninstall, there is a file in the /bru directory called 'uninstallbru' that will uninstall the whole thing.


We sincerely hope that this comment doesn't defer others from trying the product.

What?
I don't know how this can be a #1 rated product when frankly, their setup and installation sucks, and there is no backout to uninstall. I tried this freak of nature on Solaris and met with utter failure and frustration - even though I am a seasoned *ix veteran.
