Non-Ubuntu linux install

Any options to download something I can install on Fedora?

You are only offering .deb files.

Any chance we can get an .rpm?

You wanna check this out:
First, thanks for finally supporting Linux.  I'm happy to rid of WINE from my system.

 I have created a spec file that converts the .deb into an RPM and requires all of the right dependencies on F16.

Do you have plans to support a proper RPM for Fedora in the future?  There were only two bugs I came across when packaging it:
1. there is a static rpath in the 'beersmith2' binary.  I had to disable rpath checks in the spec file to avoid an error.
2. you link against a newer version of wxWidgets compared to what ships in F16, so we still need to ship your local copies.  Is this a hard dependency or if you recompiled on F16 would things be fine?  It would be nice to not redistribute libraries that are already in the distro.
