Well, I've been a little mean to say that about Mandrake. Apart
from that problem with ncurses, Mandrake is a great distribution. 

I've looked at running gnue-designer with wx2.5 yesterday. 

1. The first error:  it was complaining that it could not find the
   'ascii' codec.  I've set the LC_ALL environment variable to "C"
   and I passed this error.
2. The second problem: gnue-designer/src/base/docks/  
   in the method MySizer.RecalcSizer() :

   a.   size = self.GetSize()  returns an exception saying that it
        is expecting a pointer. I don understand the problem, 
                and I think that it's a problem at the binding level
                between wxPython and wxWindows.
                To pass this exception, i've set the width and height to
                some constants,   and commented that line. 
   b.   I've been stunned to see that (line 276):
                         for child in self.__objects: 
                                 ... bla bla ....

                generates exception (the same exception, with "expecting
                But if I change it to:

                     objs = self.__objects
                         n = len(objs)
                         while i<n:
                                 child = objs[i]
                                 ... bla bla ...
                                 i = i+1

            it does NO LONGER generate the exception. 

            I don't understand what is happening. I'm thinking to build and 
            install wxPython 2.5 myself, to be sure that I'm using a correct 
            version of it.
