If you experience difficulties related to installation on Lucid add a note (with possible solution) here, please.

Warning

There has been several reports that nuwa cannot be build on this system (and surely on newer). The most likely culprit is g++ compiler, newer than 4.4. To overcome this obstacle, it is suggested to install g++-4.4 package, and create soft links to it in your binary PATH (/usr/bin). (gcc -> gcc-4.4, g++ -> g++-4.4, and possibly others)

This was not tested, yet. Anyone try this, please share the experience with others here.
