Hi again,

I've been a little to fast before, since I didn't check any further ...

It looks like IPython-0.6.1.cvs got properly installed. - Color and
readline work to the same extent I had them working in 0.6.

However, since I had all the modules allready previously installed
I don't know how much of a help this report is ...

Regards,
 
    Viktor
