It's called:

"Installing on something other than Ubuntu"

And it says to:

"Get the following packages from your distribution:

* Python 2.4
* GStreamer from CVS
* Python GStreamer from CVS
* Gnonlin (plugin for Gstreamer)
* PyGTK 2.8
* Python Glade2
* Python Cairo
* Python D-Bus
* Python XMLPlus
* librsvg2-common (SVG rendering library for GTK)
* Python Setuptools"

So I call that is Ubuntu-only. The guys did not bother to try to
install it on other popular distros.

So, to repeat:

Will we see in five years from now Ubuntu users that know nothing about
Fedora and whose applications are specifically made for Ubuntu, the
distro itself developing more and more specific aspects of itself that
makes it involved to 'port' applications to other Linux distros ?

> And nowadays, most people don't really need installation

That's beside the point. If I can install Jokosher in about 120
seconds max (see below) that does not mean that the split does not
exists. I can install Jokosher in such a short time because somebody
else than the developers took care of packaging it. The developers
themselves did not.

And this was the subject of the split I was talking about.

For instance, where is Jokosher for CCRMA ?

Or is CCRMA not a 'sane' distro ?

The following was done in a bit less than 120 seconds using Yast
pointing at Packman:

And what do we have ? The following:

jokosher.sh
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib64/jokosher/Jokosher/JokosherApp.py", line 15, in ?
import AddInstrumentDialog, TimeView, CompactMixView

import cairo
ImportError: No module named cairo

Big deal.

Guess I'll have to install a 'sane' distro !

Cheers,
Al
