I recently (030110) downloaded Sip 3.5 , PyQt 3.5 & PyKDE 3.3.2 .
I am using Mandrake Linux 9.0rc1 , which generally works correctly.
My machine has a Celeron 466 MHz with RAM 384 MB + swap 384 MB .
I finally installed it all, but your package needs fine-tuning.
Sip & PyQt compiled & installed without a problem, but PyQt took c 2 hr :
you need to mention '-c' there (or more prominently).
With PyKDE I had to hand-edit build.py to delete 'checkPyQt' (df & call)
& hand-define the 2 variables:
pyqt = 'PyQt-3.5'
pyQtSipDir = '/root/libs/PyQt-x11-gpl-3.5/sip'
the latter being where I had unpacked PyQt: surely it should check ./sip ?
This needs fixing.
Also, build took 30 min & compile 90 min , even using '-c',
ie 4 hr altogether for a total of 38 files installed.
Is it not possible to provide these files on their own in a package?
The user has to download 150 MB source to get 500 KB installed files!
I hope this helps you & will help improve the package for other users.
