I've been trying to get python-ogre installed for quite a few hours now. I've already had to fix 2 bugs in the install scripts (environment.py)....
- - there's an instance of "untar" that need to be changed to "tar xvf" with the ode section
- the filename to download libboost from source forge is wrong, it needs to be changed from 1_35 to 1_35_0 (or 1_36_0) to download correctly[/list:u]
Now that I'm finally at the compilation stage, it's failing out with even more issues that I'm not sure how/where to fix...

Is it this hard for everyone or did I just pull from subversion at a bad time? Speaking of which....how come the only way to install Python-OGRE in Ubuntu is to pull from trunk in svn? Are there no stable nor testing releases? Why are there no tagged branches for different revisions of the code base? I see multiple versions available as .exe's for Windows, so is Linux (and I guess Mac too) just a second class citizen for the Python-OGRE dev team?
PS: Sorry if this sounds a little flamy-trollish, but I'm not exactly happy about this right now...
PSS: Is there a chat room for Python-Ogre anywhere? I couldn't find one on the site...
