branch: master
commit d093a346e5ea349ebd9440654dd87dced59edfd6
Author: Gregory W. Chicares <address@hidden>
Commit: Gregory W. Chicares <address@hidden>

    Refine instructions for installing native msw software in chroot
    Indicated a convenient moment for installing native msw software.
    Removed instructions for installing msw-native java: they don't work
    since debian-9 because the installer most commonly used for msw says:
      Install Failed
      This machine does not have the recommended amount of memory to
      install this product.
    on a machine with 64 GiB of RAM, and that cannot be fixed because,
    while java is said to be free, this installer is not; and once FOP
    has been replaced, end users won't need java to run lmi anyway.
