Hi,

I cannot answer your questions directly.

However, if you use Wine there is a Windows version 1.6.2 which I just tried in Lucid Puppy 5.1 and it works. It is available from http://portableapps.com/

Otherwise there are older versions available from http://portablelinuxapps.org/ which are highly likely to work well,

My regards

Meantime, I tried to install it from .deb package.

Unfortunately, when trying to run it through console, I get error: "PyYAML not found. Please install python-yaml or PyYAML",
although I have installed following packages from puppy-lucid repository:
libyaml-0-2:0.1.3-1
python-yaml_3.09-2bulid1
Why the software does not see these libraries?

Installing python modules from debs can be a real pain on puppy - don't let anyone tell you different. I've discussed it on the dev forums, and no one seems very interested... and i'm no python dev. The typical issue is that the modules are not installed on the sys.path.

What i've done, with occasional success, is:

1) open the deb file

dpkg-deb -x WHATEVER.deb .

(there's a period at the end of that, but it's hard to see)

2) find the modules and stuff within

3) if python is installed (it isn't by default in official releases)

# python
>>> import sys
>>> print sys.path

and put them in a directory that looks appropriate.

**I would love to have someone give a better explaination than that**, but maybe it will help.

I will try to get it working over the weekend if you or someone else doesn't have it before then.

I downloaded RedNootebook 1.1.0 from http://portablelinuxapps.org/ . I made the binary executable (chmod 755 RedNotebook 1.1.0). It opened and seems to work fine.

tatamata, have you tried this method? Seems to work quite well.

jaspar: good lookin' out with the http://portablelinuxapps.org/ site. Very cool!
