thanks a lot for the debian-paraview-package. I'm running debian-testing
on amd64.

With the paraview-3.2.2 binaries from Ondrej Certik's repository
paraview frequently stopped and blocked mouse and keyboard input for the
gnome-desktop. (Sometimes it seemed as if waiting to long before picking
a submenu-item triggered the crash. But I did not investigate that any

Therefore I just compiled the source tarballs V.3.2.3 with the stuff
from the pkg-scicomp-repository.

In the first place I got an error from cmake saying that the variable
QT_X11_Xext_LIBRARY is not set properly. That's why I created the
following link:

ln -s /usr/lib/libXext.so.6 /usr/lib/libXext.so

After that everything went fine so far.

P.S. Excuse me if that's not the right place for this message, I'm not
familiar with the bug-tracking system at all.
