[PlanetCCRMA] No pure data in repo for Fedora 22

I meet the problem too.
I think that the problem is due to pd looking for extra objects in /usr/local/lib/pd-extended/extra instead of /usr/lib64/pd-extended/extra (it's in s_path.c).

The workaround I found was to create a pd-external directory in my user account and copy all the externals into pd-externals:

mkdir ~/pd-externals
for Files in `find /usr/lib64/pd-extended/extra/`; do cp -r $Files pd-externals/; done

I noticed that the "magic glass" is also missing.
It's like we have the vanilla pd installed + extra packages instead of pd-extended + extra packages.

Best regards,

Thanks Fernando for the hard work. I have a question though - I've just
installed the pd-extended package, but it seems that what I get when
I run pdextended is pd vanilla, not pd-extended. The appearance is
that of vanilla and I don't have access to pd-extended's libraries
(there's no [import] object for example).

May this be some library path problem?
