Description of problem:
Although I did not update python to version 2.4 pygtk2 (and pyorbit) install
without a conflict and installed stuff into /usr/lib/python2.4

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. update pygtk2 and pyorbit without updating python
2. look were things are installed

Additional info:

pygtk2-2.4.1-2 lists python2 >= 2.3 as requirement, but installs into
So it should rather have listed python2 >= 2.4 as requirement.
(otherwise package managers like apt will automatically upgrade it
without realising that it won't work without python2.4)
Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2006-11-04 17:15:00 EST
Is this still an issue?  RPM now adds an automatic dependency on python-abi [1].

Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2007-01-02 13:12:07 EST
Closing as NOTABUG due to lack of response and the fact that packages no longer
need to explicitly require python-abi.
