Okay, I guess I need to set up an apt or yum repository myself, since I'm
not aware of any public ones (WBEL uses the up2date command). - Next step is
to locate apt-get or yum, that will run on WBEL4..

Okay - I'll try to see if I can get something up and running ... Otherwise
I'll be back for more info ;-)
