Finally: porting to other distributions

Although the powersave package still has its "home base" on SUSE Linux, we are now trying to make sure that it at least builds on other distributions, too. Of course we cannot test everything and there may be some rough edges here and there (i would not bet on the scripts handling installation to any other prefix than /usr) but with your feedback, we will try to make everything work.

Note that if you want to use the suspend features, you should use a recent 2.6 kernel (2.6.11 seems fine) and of course have software suspend enabled during kernel compilation (suspend2 is not supported yet).

Try it out and report success or failures, we will try to help you to get it running!
