Ah, okay.  I've just tried Pilgrim.  It reports:

Error: Failure finding best provider of /etc/redhat-release for
initscripts-8.86-1.olpc4.3.i386, exceeded maximum loop length
Error: Failure finding best provider of system-logos for
plymouth-0.6.0-0.2008.11.17.3.fc10.i386, exceeded maximum loop length
