Thank you. (By the way, I haven't forgotten about your request to add
seasonality to the gretl ARMA command, but I have been busy!)

package from another distribution (different from Mandrake) having
exactly the library libpng.so.2.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but I think there's little I can do about

the "session-graphic page", the accents are not displayed.
Ah, OK, I'll try to track that down.
- In generating this "session-graphic page" with several

because I have just installed Mandrake 10.0 and the default option
for dvips was sending the file to the default printer...
That sounds like a good idea.

OK, will fix.
