I use always latest cvs-version. Working changes to the specfile are done
directly to the cvs. Once all changes to the specfile have been done,
the following branch (1.7.x) can be used as a basis.

I'll study that. According to the comments in the specfile, earlier authors
have had some problems -- maybe they have gone in the time passing -- I hope.

LilyPond is a compiler, hence, it requires an argument -- the file to be
compiled. In menu entries there are two possibilities:

1) With lilypond-documentation installed, browse html documentation:
   What (default-)browser one can use in order to browse html-documentation?

2) With lilypond-documentation not installed, browse Info documentation.
   One should launch info inside a terminal. What is the default terminal?

Compiling dependencies. Among others:

*) Flex-2.5.24 (or later) should replace flex-2.5.4a in the following mandrake
   distribution. Earlier versions fail sometimes with gcc-3.2.
