Because there is no money to pay for a tech writer and the documentation is written by developers.

These instructions might help. It took me a lot of looking and reading and still I did not have everything needed to support S@H on a linux box. I have not posted this procedure on this site because I have not had anyone read it/try it. If someone would provide feedback with respect to accuracy, errors etc. I would appreciate it. I have no problem posting here or in another thread but would like to be sure of the accuracy of the procedure before posting here and creating more confusion should I have introduced errors. I too am relatively "new" to this and struggled.

you can see it here: http://www.usefulramblings.org/?page_id=3240

I just noticed the post time: Happy New Year everyone. As for me I am still in 2012 and counting down: ~3 hours 18 min
