Yes, please someone package this up! I have been dying to try this out,
and have been trying to install PyQt/Qscintilla for a few days now. I
spent the holidays setting up a fresh Linux box at home for the sole
purpose of trying eric3 out. I have yet to experience success. I
cannot seem to compile PyQt/Qscintilla properly for eric to install.
All of the issues seem to be related to Qt and it messing with the
compile stages of PyQt/Qscintilla.
The binaries on sourceforge are next to useless for the latest eric3
because the PyQt RPMS don't have Qscintilla support in them! I'm sure
there would be a lot more interest in this editor/debugger if it would
install effortlessly (well...reasonably effortlessly - at least have the
supporting packages compile properly).
(BTW - I am currently running Mandrake 9)
