Get it from your distribution under linux or use the ready-made
installer from Phil for windows. I don't know what the state on MacOSX
is. In worst case you're fetching sip+pyqt4 from riverbankcomputing and
build them one after the other. There are no other deps, except Qt/C++

Same as the first thing above: They should use the PyQt4 installer from
Phil or distro packages and then just execute your python script.


You get along very well with everyone except animals and people.
