Greets all. headache problem.

for some reason, i can not get pd-extended 0.43.1 to load Gem. i am running on puredyne linux. i have tried putting gem into the startup, to the path, both individually and together. I have downloaded the latest version and copied it to the directory, which didnt work. i tried linking to the folder in my home folder...didnt work. i copied all of my patches to the pd-extended directory which didnt work. i have no idea what to try next. i dont know if its a 0.43.1 problem, a puredyne problem, niether, both or something else entirely.

also, any one have opinions about 0.43.1 on linux yet? yes, no, maybe? or should i go back to 0.42.5?

any advice is, as always, much appreciated.
