I see, that's how it's done (you can see I'm really green in python...:-)

Excellent advice, thanks!
When I managed to install it, I did just that, however got other opaque
error messages when starting it up, so I needed to do more, see below...

I found the package, a few more needed to be installed and even then
I couldn't start pida, when the email of TermiT came:

I did just that only to discover even more rpm's were needed:

Installing for dependencies:
 gnome-python2-gtkhtml2  i386       2.19.1-13.fc8    updates            17 k
 python-kiwi             noarch     1.9.19-1.fc8     updates           435 k
 vim-X11                 i386       2:7.1.211-1.fc8  updates           992 k

And, of course, pida was installed in 'root' which I didn't want, but so
be it for now.

I could bring it up and it seemed to work, but have number of issues
(e.g., it uses system vim, I cannot force it to use 'mine' (which is
always up-to-date, while FC8 is not), it uses probably gnome terminal
for running shell, I have to run with 'xterm' for other reasons, etc...
so I am opening a few "bugs" (rather feature requests).

Otherwise it looks quite promising, I'll play with it more.

Thanks to all of you for a quick help with the installation.
