OK, I see where you're coming from. When I use Ubuntu 10.03 I get Squeak 
by going to http://www.squeak.org and in the upper right hand corner is 
the Downloads pane with a link that says All-In-One. Click that. I put 
the unzipped package on my desktop. Then I cd into 
Squeak-All-In-One.app. Once in there there is a script called squeak.sh.


in the Terminal and all that sources stuff is behind you. It'll open up, 
etc. The deployment with yum is understandable, but that stuff relies 
upon third parties whom are behind our update curve. The Squeak homepage 
is the best place to get Squeak.
