I'm curious to hear about that.

For some reason, i had to change all my permissions to the directories
of pd[p] / pidip; otherwise i wouldn't be able to see them at all.  Is
this because i installed while logged in as root?

I tried to open the /pdp_pidip_osx/doc/introduction/quicktime.pd and it
opens, but how can i load a movie into it? Rob mentioned his fiddeling
around with minimized windows, but i'm still a step before that i think.

I also wrote down all my [mis]-steps in this installation-procedure.
I'll try to make a html-install-version as well. Maybe [later] it can be
combined with Rob's notes.

Thanx for all of U being so patient. And all the online-help wasn't as
poor as you might think, it really helped me a lot.  Probably you can
expect more questions later, but then about the working of pdp..  [I
mean, if i cannot even load a quicktime ;) ]
