Well, it isn't that easy. The request came from some kind of ministry. And as you can imagine, they don't just do testing or change their main server system for me. Nevertheless I also asked them if they could do this test :)

Well that would be a way. The only problem is, that I don't have a clue how to do that. As I said, I'm really new to Linux. And this is why I also use Ubuntu. Is there somewhere a kind of step by step manual how to compile sourcecode in Ubuntu?
