Default Akami Download Manager -

More in my continuing struggle with "The Teaching Company" and
my attempt to download the files they sold me.

After installing "user-agent-switcher" in Firefox their system
offered me what appears to be a Windows app., "Akami Download
Manager.":

[bobg@box9 Downloads]$ ll -ant *.exe*
-rw-rw-r--. 1 500 500 363080 Mar 19 12:11 installer.exe

The problem is I can log into their site and do everything up to
the point of clicking on the download button at which point
nothing happens, the "hand" just stays there, it doesn't
recognize my action. Before they implemented this Akami stuff I
had not problem.

Does anyone know of a way to deal with this other than
installing Windows? Actually this computer came with Windows XP
but it refuses to run since I installed F-14 but that's another
problem.

Bob

Install VirtualBox, then install XP as a virtual machine. You can grab
a repo that installs it for Fedora at
http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads. I'm very impressed at
how easy it's made it for me when I have to deal with Windows.

Or, you could use the default KVM visualization built into F-14.

I've tried this and KVM, both produce error messages.

Presently virtualbox suggests I need to do:

[root@box9 bobg]# /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all
config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/.
Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules

Recompiling VirtualBox kernel modules

So then the log:

Failed to install using DKMS, attempting to install without

What do I need to do to satisfy this?

I guess it's is already there:

[root@box9 bobg]# yum install kernel-headers
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Package kernel-headers-2.6.35.11-83.fc14.i686 already installed
and latest version
Nothing to do

Any other ideas welcome.

By the way once you get it installed - you will likely want the
extension pack located http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

[root@box9 bobg]# yum install kernel-devel
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Package kernel-devel-2.6.35.11-83.fc14.i686 already installed and
latest version
Nothing to do


I'm beginning to think I don't really need virtualbox and Windows!

Thanks for the help though.
