GINI no longer works in Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala. The gBuilder runs but
it won't load or compile topologies because the XML module used by GINI
is deprecated and has been removed from the Canonical repositories, so
apt-get and the packet management software can't find it.
As a workaround, source and binaries are available here:
I couldn't build it from source, but the .deb of the i386 binary worked
fine (use amd64 for 64-bit systems).
Apparently the official response from Canonical on this is "rewrite your
app with the newer Python XML module".
