What version of pygtk2 do you have, and what locale are you using?
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-07-19 12:26:09 EDT
Locale info:

sh-2.05a$ locale
LANG=en_US
LC_CTYPE="en_US"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US"
LC_TIME="en_US"
LC_COLLATE="en_US"
LC_MONETARY="en_US"

LC_PAPER="en_US"
LC_NAME="en_US"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US"
LC_ALL=

Secondary package:

pygtk2-1.99.10-3
pygtk2-devel-1.99.10-3
pygtk2-libglade-1.99.10-3

Went and got the latest version from the server.
pygtk2-1.99.11-1.src.rpm

Now I run printtool and nothing happens , no window ,no core just a prompt
returning. So I recompiled redhat-config-printer-0.4.14-1.src.rpm incase
of a hidden depend. No dice same effect , tried all the commands from the gui
package.

Off hand comment:

Sigh, on a a side note I wish there was a script that
would download all the new rawhide sources and 
recompile/install every night.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2002-07-19 12:37:45 EDT
Is this a Limbo upgrade?
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-07-19 12:45:57 EDT
this is a 7.1 alpha pushed to the current rawhide release
give or take a week.

This was fixed a while ago I think.
