Do you know how to create an rpm that works on all three
"rpm-style" distributions? Or do you know a good "how-to"
document? Would you be willing to help me prepare such an
rpm for Axiom on Linux?

Oh ya, 3 different installer systems for 5 different
"linux" systems - that's progress. ;)

Debian we already have - Thanks to Camm Maguire.

Fedora has some variant of apt-get doesn't it? I don't
suppose a Debian/Fedora package is possible though, eh?

Maybe that's why there are so few linux systems running
Maple and such programs ... :?) I understand your
reluctance but as long as the installer is open source
and widely used, I don't see any real problem - except
of course that as far as I have been able to determine
there are no such installer programs yet.
