Hello h2,
Apparently this package has been moved, and after the wget -Nc smxi.org/smxi.zip from /usr/local/bin I cannot get it although terminal reports new location as sm/smxi.zip and attempts download from there.
unzip reports unable to write to smxi.zip. Permission denied.
Unsure if to attempt unzip as root, there was no need before.

No problems on this end.

You can avoid placing a download in unexpected location by using -O /usr/local/bin/smxi.zip smxi.org/zip

Note that this either works or doesn't, so if it worked in this test, it works.

:: Code ::
wget -O smxi.zip smxi.org/smxi.zip

It is my fault, missed to run commands as root, that's the reason for Permission denied.
Sorry for bothering.
