Have you tried to install the tkinter package?

Comment 2 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-11-05 13:13:10 UTC
Either way, added a Requires of tkinter for python-tools. Should be fixed in the
upcoming rawhide package. Let me know if installing tkinter fixes the problem
you noticed.

Comment 3 Fred Gansevles 2002-11-05 20:48:57 UTC
yes, installing tkinter fixed the problem.

Comment 4 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-11-05 20:57:56 UTC
OK, closing as RAWHIDE since I've added the missing dependency (even though it
will take a while until the package makes it into rawhide).
