Thanks. Just to confirm, since I don't neet to run the GUI on my
remote servers, I can get away by just installing the linux tar file.
The deb package failed since it says that it is valid only for a 32
bit machine.

It would be nice to be able to force the install of the 32 bit .deb
package on a 64 bit server with no gui.
