If I understood their page right, you do not only need the Squash-
TM, but also the Squash-SC, Squash-Data and Squash-TA as well to 
localise your tests, or am I wrong?

Well, maybe on their system ... ;)

I made the mistake to download their Squash-TM package 
(http://www.squashtest.org/index.php/en/downloads/finish/17-version-stable/83-squash-tm-1-7-5-windows-mac-linux-tar-gz), unpacked it and 
started bin/startup.sh (as described on 
https://sites.google.com/a/henix.fr/wiki-squash-tm/installation-and-exploitation-guide/3---run-and-stop-squash-tm). But after nearly 
three minutes I was not able to do anything, as my /tmp directory 
was up to 100% ... :( And a restart of my system leads to an 
nonfunctional system (or better say: A system with no X, though KDM 
was running) ... :( If you really want to install it on one of the 
TDF servers, please test it first at your own system (one, that has 
more power / is newer than mine etc. ... ;) ). I only found the 
solution to reinstall my Debian, as all tips I found online did not 
help here ... :(

Will stain.
