Glad to be of help!
The toolbox has some AIX level requirements, and well... for my lpars I'm not at the latest or compatible versions for various reasons. So, I went right to the software's source and installed it outside of the toolbox.

The thing I don't like is now its one more package that I must keep track of and a simple 'yum update' won't pull down latest. But it meets the needs.

Take care!
