Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-03-18 17:22:04 EST
python2-2.2-11 has a separate tkinter2 package which does not conflict.
Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2002-03-19 03:44:35 EST
Maybe tkinter2 should obsolete tkinter then? Would make manual upgrades more
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-03-19 13:01:00 EST
Of course not. Python 1.5 w/tkinter is still the primary python.
