For MusE you don't need the CVS. MusE seems difficult to install but is not
It is in fact straightforward now since there is a configure script.
Well may be it will ask for some tools or libs to be upgraded, but i don't
remember such a thing or having troubles on my Mdk8.2
The most annoyant part is the QT3 library. MusE will need libqt-mt.so.3
and may be you don't have it on your system by default.
So it forces you to recompile the qt3 yourself even if you have it :(
It will takes hours to compile, yuck.
After that big task, you have to declare some QT3_PATH in your /etc/profile,
then MusE should compile without a hassle. (even with gcc2.96).
Again MusE takes 1 hour to compile on a 800 mhz.
The pre4 had a weird bug preventing any usage, 3 days latter the pre5 is out.
It compiles fine and seems to work ok. I will report if there are any problem.
