Looking around in the net I have seen one thing that seems to be one of the best solutions to create multiplatform installers that perfectly integrate the install process in the host OO.SS.
It can make native installers for Windows and Mac OSX , and native graphical installers for linux, even it can create RPM or deb packages automatically.
So if you can integrate this tool in the Houdini build system the users can get several options to install the app.
I think this is really necessary to ease the installation on Linux.
What do you think?
