ok, fedora is on my list of the systems (rpm based) to test, good to 
know that no epm is available in the repositories. Or better not good to

I will test it on fedora with a fresh downloaded epm from the webpage. 
But i have to setup a build env on fedora first. If you are interested

I was able to build on Ubuntu with the system epm 4.2. Well i have not

takes some time...
