complaints but to date this has not happened. That leaves the 11.1
users with three options. Wait for the package update from openSuSE,
compile and install Python 2.6 from source code, or compile and install
the bsddb3 module.

Since the _bsddb module provided by the Python 2.6 package is troublsome
(the reason it was omitted) and will not be present in the 3.0 release I
opted to install the bsddb3 module instead. I am not sure if Gramps

It would be most welcome to have Gramps as an installable package from
one of the repositories. Another one is Gourmet! I've tried to get it to
install, but it refuses to on 11.1. I contacted the author but he's not
be forthcoming with any assistance, even when sent an error report.
