My continuing foray into LinuxPPC is actually going pretty well. I finally feel like I’ve successfully turned the corner on understanding how to get everything working. That’s not to say that I’ve successfully managed to get Zope up and running yet (a couple permissions issues to resolve first), but I did get it compiled despite my Linux machine’s initial lack of a compiler, headers, libraries, and a full understanding of how to install RPMs. The key was installing gnorpm, the Gnome Redhat Package Manager because it does a really nice job of showing you what you have and what you still need to install.
