[chirp_users] Chirp and Ubuntu 10.04

OK, I've made some progress in troubleshooting this. The package in
the PPA is just plain broken,
and I suggest you install from the tarball until I can fix it, and
don't use the PPA. In fact, I'm
going to delete the broken package from the PPA.

The package installs the modules to the wrong directory, putting them
in /usr/share instead
of in /usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages

So I understand the problem, but I can't fix the packaging right away
because I'm traveling for
the rest of today. I can probably fix it by Monday.

The reason this didn't fail on the machine I'm on now is that the
files in the right location were
left over from a previous release which I had installed manually and
forgotten was even installed
(i.e. I thought this was a clean machine). I'm sorry for the problems
caused by the bad package,
but thanks for the help in tracking this down.
