Installing gourmet 11.5 works fine. But when I run it gives a database connection failed with:

Odd -- this appears to be a python versioning issue -- I don't know when rsplit was introduced, but apparently not until after whatever version you have. I just changed rsplit -> split in the sourcecode -- I'm not sure why I used rsplit anyway as in this case it should make no difference. If you want to change it yourself rather than re-download all the source, there are only two instances, in src/lib/backends/rdatabase.py at lines 811 and 828
That solved it. Debian currently defaults to python 2.3.5, so I'm guessing rsplit was added in 2.4.x
