for info: It wasn't a total failure because most of it worked OK.
I had used TinyMCE for articles until I installed the CKrc2 and after installation, (in Admin view) all inserted pictures from before came up as an empty square with a small X in the corner (like a broken link) but the public view of the site was still OK.
I changed my editor back to TinyMCE again and it was all OK again.
That was using IE (it was similar using FireFox)
Keep up the good work, and keep on smiling... the final release can't be far away :)
I will change ckeditor baseHref path to works with default joomla editor. You always can change this settings in component configuration -> Custom configuration setting in advanced settings tab. The new settings should be less confused for new users. Thx for report this problem.
