Panda3d rpm for linux users

Over the last year it has become quite clear that the installation procedure documented by the CMU team and the Disney developers is not workable for linux developers and users. I invested 3 weekends with the Lindows 4.5 distro, Redhat 9 distro and now the Mandrake 10 distro. All failed in different and quite bizzare ways — which I will document in glorious detail in another post.

I would like to get feedback from the user community for support for a linux rpm posting. My preference it to get the Mandrake 10 distro up first.
