Well I think it is. OpenBmap works on top of the freesmartphone.org 
framework (FSO), and if I recall correclty, the 2008.12 distribution is 
not based on it.

The 'site-package' location contains python packages and modules. This 
is in the path when you run python apps, for what I have understood. The 
ipk try to put his package into this place, and expects the directory 
structure given in my last email. This is hardcoded in the package, I 
don't know how I can easily make the ipk to put it dynamically under the 
current python site package path (maybe with pre/post script).
So this is hardcoded in the ipk where to put the logger.py, but this not 
hardcoded in the program that the logger.py should be anywhere specific 
(if found in the path, it works).

Hope I have been clear enough ;-) Let me know if this helps...
