First of all, you need gnome-python.

Second of all, once you do that, it won't work anyways. We're
working on it.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-11 11:13:59 EST
Duh, make that rpm-python. Asleep at the wheel.
Comment 3 Steve Wills 2000-02-11 11:14:59 EST
Well, I did a "gnome workstation" install. Perhaps there is a broken dependency?
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-12 14:58:59 EST
Yes, there is.
Comment 5 Preston Brown 2000-02-28 13:17:59 EST
fixed before final 6.2 release.
