The -l flag seems to be horrible broken. Can you try "dvm install 2.060".

However, it's quite odd that results are the same for each time dmd is executed. I would expect a random result or even a segfault/abort on different runs.

Shouldn't the application be terminated when a library fails to load?

Ok now that everyone is bashing I can jump in, too. I tried a few commands and they all failed with bugs already listed in the bug tracker. no kidding. :D

--- "dvm list": An unknown error occurred:
tango.core.Exception.VfsException: FileFolder.open :: path does not exist: /home/marco/.dvm/compilers

--- "dvm -l install":
zsh: segmentation fault  ./dvm-0.4.0-linux-64 -l install

--- "dvm install dmd-2.060":
Fetching: http://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd.dmd-2.060.zip
An unknown error occurred:
tango.core.Exception.IOException: The resource with URL "http://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd.dmd-2.060.zip" could not be found.

--- "dvm install 2.060":
Fetching: http://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd.2.060.zip [========================================>] 26846/26191 KB

Installing: dmd-2.060
An unknown error occurred:
tango.core.Exception.IOException: /home/marco/.dvm/bin/dmd-2.060 :: No such file or directory

At this point I stopped, because I was too scared.

 I remember this. I remember scratching my head and asking why, but then realizing that likely 99% of the time it's never called, so I started using it to build and do unittests (without Junit).

 Curiously. I'm suddenly reminded of a test suite I made for a company for Visual Basic. It was years ago and a nice little test suite; I really wish I had a copy.

I don't remember, it's a long time ago. But this was one of them:
https://github.com/jacob-carlborg/dvm/issues/11

Basically it was case of: download, find a bug, find another bug,
think "this has already cost me more time than it could ever save me", quit now.
