I can't reproduce (it worksforme on x86_64 anyway).

More details please,
rpm -q sip PyQt
Comment 2 Yufei Yuan 2007-11-12 13:40:14 EST
[alex@core2duo ~]$ rpm -q sip PyQt
Comment 3 Yufei Yuan 2007-11-12 13:41:14 EST
Just saw that PyQt is for fc9, is that a developmental package?
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2007-11-12 13:46:55 EST
yes, downgrade back to fc8's stock: PyQt-3.17.1.    Quick-n-dirty method:
rpm -e --nodeps PyQt
yum install PyQt

(And update to PyQt-3.17.3 is in the works, but for now, 3.17.1 is the latest).
Comment 5 Yufei Yuan 2007-11-12 13:48:21 EST
Reversed PyQt to original PyQt-3.17.1-1.fc7 on disk solved the issue. Thanks. It
can be closed.
