hi all:

as far as compiling desiredata goes (on linux), it should require just the same dependencies as building Pd. atm, errors are mostly coming from running it, simply because its still very much of a work in progress.

yes, once its built, all objects/externals should work, as they are compatible with Pd. excepts those involving GUI/tk. as far as patching goes, there are still a few main problems that needs to be solved. namely GOP and 
optimized patch loading/updating.

the problem with desiredata so far is that both matju and i have been on and off with its development (because of other commitments), so it has been very slow at times. however, we seen to be around these days, so hopefully 
we will make some good progress on it again soon.

yeah, me too;)
