I use ZSI all the time. I wasn't aware of the problems with the RPM,
but using an RPM for distribution of a Python
source package isn't a good idea anyway. ZSI is now indexed on PyPI,
and there is a 2.0 prerelease that comes in .egg
so you shouldn't have to build from source. From what I understand,
using PyPI should pull in all the
dependencies automatically for you.
That said, building ZSI from source isn't really that hard; there are 3
or 4 dependencies, all of which install using "python setup.py install".
I strongly suggest that if you are having problems with ZSI that you
join the mailing list and submit bug reports to the developers:
