Hi folks,

I'm trying to get the party renderer working on my newly upgraded
ubuntu system running 8.10 Intrepid.
 that makes the cool animation of gpx traces from a mapping party.

So, it requires pymedia - and this needs to be compiled.
Previous attempts are documented on hardy [2] and gutsy [3]
gcc-3.4 is installable but with intrepid G++ 3 is not installable! And
apparently ubuntu "won't fix" this [4]

That's what I think is going wrong, anyhow . But has / can anyone get
the party render.py or video.py working on their ubuntu 8.10 system,
and tell us how they did it?
