Positron, Fedora 2

This is mainly for the googlers -- If you're using Fedora 2, and tryingto install Positron, the Neuros sync manager, from RPM, there's achance you'll get the following error when you try to run it:

ImportError: No module named positron.config

Quick fix:

ln -s /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/positron/

Explanation: The positron packagers expected you to be using Python 2.2,and Fedora2 comes with Python 2.3. Making a symlink will let Python 2.3 knowwhere it can find the Positron modules.

I haven't tested this yet, as my new NeurosII is still in FedEx neverland, butfrom what I can tell without the hardware, it looks ok.
