A quick note re. installing AG 2.3 on RedHat 9 (still one of our standard

FC1 Packages from http://www.itee.uq.edu.au/~grangenet/ag_fedora/  (thanks
  wget -r -nd -np -A rpm \

rpm -Uvh PyXML-0.8.3-1.i386.rpm (upgrade to PyXML-0.8.3-1.i386.rpm from
   FC1 distribution)
rpm -hi *.rpm  (install most 2.3 packages normally)
rpm -hi AccessGrid-2.3-3.i386.rpm --nodeps
 (python-2.2.3 requires libdb-4.1, don't want to go there as sendmail etc.
  use db4)
Use Rat from AG 2.1 or 2.2 (rat-media won't work on RH9 - maybe
     due to Alsa patch)
 - copy /etc/AccessGrid/NodeServices/AudioService.zip from

  - horrible hack to get 2.2 into tempdir/etc as non-root user :
  rpm -r tempdir -i AccessGrid-2.2-6.i386.rpm --nodeps \
    --relocate=/=tempdir 2>/dev/null
  cp tempdir/etc/AccessGrid/NodeServices/AudioService.zip \
  rm tempdir/*
or just install the 2.2 rpm normally, grab AudioService.zip then upgrade
to 2.3 ...

using this recipe, the venueclient and media seem to work, at any rate
