I'm doing a fresh install of IRAF V2.15 patch 1 on a Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit system.
So... I grabbed this file,
but the install fails, with the following messages:

Ops! Thanks for pointing this out! And for responding so quickly!
I had gone to the ftp site and looked at the timestamps on the files in the PCIX directory, and had assumed that the iraf.linux.x86_64.gz file, with a timestamp from 2010, was V2.15 without the patch. Not realizing that is was a symbolic link...
Can I make a plea for new standard filenames? e.g.,
Note: the version and patch is in the name; no extra dots; it says that it is a tar archive; and it uses bz2 compression which is considerably better than gz.
