About the check_prerequisites.py/sh files. It is a neat little program,
probably most useful for Windows installations I guess. But still you
have worry about which versions are installed.
However, in Linux the precise dependancies including versions should be
handled by the packaging system.
This brings up another point, the documentation needs to be updated to
more accurately show which versions are needed using >=, =, <=, etc...
The current doc says python-2.2, although I'm sure python-2.3 would
work, at least the main gui login pops up for me, but I haven't gone
further for lack of a database to connect to. And every other python
app I have worked fine when I upgraded to python-2.3 a few weeks ago.
So really the dependancy should say something like >=python-2.1 I'll
look into all those dependancies when I get a chance. I'm having
trouble compiling user-manual.sgml to HTML, due to some problem with my
