[Gnumed-devel] limitations of Mandrake

In an earlier email, Syan made reference to Mandrake 10 lacking support for a component of PostgreSQL.

If that is a correct and real limitation, does it affect Mandrake only as far as running as a gnumed *server*, or would it create problems for client software under Mandrake, as well?

The reason that I am wondering is because there is a version of Mandrake (9.1) available for PowerPC processors, which would mean I could reformat the drive on my oldest Mac and install either just Mandrake 9.1 or a dual-boot configuration. That way I would be at least able to see gnumed *working* (given that it will not run under the Mac OS at present).

Also, if I were to arrange for someone to install the gnumed client on machine that must run Windows-dependent Internet Explorer (because of some custom plug-ins)

- do people think the instructions remain workable at*checkout*/gnumed/gnumed/gnumed/client/doc/user-manual/win9x.html#AEN859

- I don't discern from the above URL any info on downloading GnuMed, the info just says

Once you have done this, you can run GNUMed from the Python interpreter. Click on the Python icon and type:
>>>   import sys
 >>>   sys.path.append ('path-to-gnumed-files')
 >>>   import gnumed
 >>>   gnumed.main ()

should the client be downloaded/installed from CVS under Windows? Under Cygwin? if there is any Wondows-specific installation information available (other than what is the draft manual referenced above), can anyone point to it?
