Latest fbink install?

unfortunate newby question...
I want to install the latest fbink, which i thought comes with the latest usbnetwork tar. so i downloaded kindle-usbnet-0.22.n...tar and copied the update_usbnet bin file to the mrinstall folder and ran the installer ok.
However, fbink is still v1.20.3. Can I find the new fbink binary somewhere?
thanks for the help!

You probably have an old standalone binary installed somewhere which might come earlier in your $PATH .

Or, if you're using the Python bindings, you need to update the Python package .

I found an (link) old one in /usr/bin/fbink pointing to /mnt/usr/usbnet/bin.
Not sure where the MR installer put the new one, so I copied the new fbink binary into the usbnet directory and now I have v1.23!
Thanks!
I downloaded package kindle-usbnet-0.22.N-r17940.tar.xz and extracted /USBNetwork/Update_usbnet_0.22.N_install_pw2_kt2_kv_pw3_koa_kt 3_koa2_pw4_kt4.bin to the mrinstall folder.

Well, USBNet definitely installs it in ... usbnet .

So, I'd check how old the package you actually used is, and/or MRPI's log for potential failures.
