Hi hans & list,

I've seen that the installation of the X11 user package is necessary to 
run GEM under osx with the last 0.40-3 RC2 pd extended.
I was wondering if it's possible to explicite that on the installers 
pages (http://at.or.at/hans/pd/installers.html and in the near future : 

As pd-extended is very useful for beginners, I think it can be difficult 
for some of them to understand the printed error in the pd console.

Maybe a line as:

To run GEM and other graphical applications, you need to install X11 first.

would be a clear and simple indication.
A link as this one

could also be helpy.
