    Hmmm… I couldn't get it to install properly on Fedora. Is there a reason for not using a standard Python installer? I'm sure the .deb works fine for Ubuntu or whatever, but the script install, rpm and running from source all fail in Fedora13

    Well, I have no clue how the Python installer works. I'll have a look however. And source installs are a chore anyway, so I went for a packaging tool instead.

    The RPM is awfully generic, so it won't install any dependencies. You could try the OpenSUSE or Mandriva installer eventually.

    That auto-generated installer GUI isn't that useful either. It just extracts the files, so usually you are better of with a source install. Here's how it works:

    The st2.py executable into /usr/bin/
    The remaining stuff as-is into /usr/share/streamtuner2/
    (including the channels/ subdir)

    It then depends on the installed python libs. It had its compatibility woes, but is supposed to work with some things absent. It needs however: Python>2.5, and PyGTK with PyObject and co.
