Installation of Dimdim4.5 RPM on Ubuntu 8.10

    I've been learning and testing how to compile, install.. etc

    Did some requests in the forum. Still no reply to my posts. :/

    Anyway, I've downloaded the rpm for Dimdim4.5 and trying to set up on Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid.

    I followed the steps from the 'readme' file and got stuck at the PycURL installation.

    I have Python2.5 installed. I don't know how to install PycURL 7.19.

    Any instruction or idea will be much appreciated.

    What if I set up Dimdim4.5 rpm without the PycURL?

      I know this has nothing to do with the Dimdim but I really need help.

      I'm trying to set up on Ubuntu 8.10 and having this PycURL import problem.

      When I type "import pycurl", I'm getting something like this.

      Fatal Python error: pycurl: libcurl link-time version is older than compile-time version

      Actually, I'm a windows user and absolute beginner to linux.

      Can anybody help me how to fix it?

      Still nothing.. Duh.

      I've fixed the problem and continued installation.
      Had to use alien and convert the rpm package into debian and installed. :/
      Needed to changed some commands also.

      I'm now stuck at the starting and stopping.
      Unable to locate any of the following binaries:
        /usr/local/dimdim/ConferenceServer/apache-tomcat-5.5.17/bin/wrapper (Found but not executable.)

      any idea?

      i am trying to install on ubuntu to no avail, and since its an ec2 image it makes no sence touse vmware, thats too costly to vertualize on a virtual instance, not porting to the debian branch would seem to be a grave mistake for such a promising project.... ofcourse i'm biast i'm a dehbian guy through and through and have no idea how to even use rpms........................   sigh
