Let me see if I understand this properly . . .
Okay - the idea behind Zero Install is what it's name portends: that there is actually no installation performed and that all libraries/binaries are actually somewhere on the internet? Let me throw this in the mix - I live in Central Florida, known as "The Lightning Capital of the World" - we average 14 lightning strikes per acre each year. I am on DSL due to non-availability of cable. We have LOTS of electrical storms, and every time (or pretty close to every time) there's a lightning flash, I lose internet connectivity. Does this mean that, if I was using a program thru Zero Install, that program would crash?
GTK2 xmms port
I messed with this for a few hours tonight - finally got it to work :) - this must have been built against XFree86 4.1.0 because it kept looking for libXxf86vm.so - doesn't exist in at least my version of XFree86 4.3.0 so I worked around that - I also did a work-around so that this can be built and installed alongside the "normal" xmms for GTK+ without over-writing any files - and I also built RPMS for Red Hat (note: built on RawHide so I'll just give the SRPMS link):
