Most of the developers do use Debian (after all we are a GNU project). 
However, we take documentation from people using other distributions,
for example there is a getting started guide for Red Hat 7.2 I think. We
have a few folks that use Mandrake so I know that it works on Mandrake.

In general what you need.

Python >= 2.x
wxPython(wxGTK) >= 2.x
mxDateTime (reasonably current version)

A database (pick from many more than likely postgres or mysql comes with
pythondriver for chosen database

That should be about it as far as dependencies go.  We do not have rpms
for GNUe yet but we take patches.  All dependencies should not only be
available via RPM but should be included on the Mandrake and Red Hat
distribution CDs.
