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 16:13:59 UTC
Duh, make that rpm-python. Asleep at the wheel.

Comment 3 Steve Wills 2000-02-11 16:14:59 UTC
Well, I did a "gnome workstation" install. Perhaps there is a broken dependency?

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-12 19:58:59 UTC
Yes, there is.

Comment 5 Preston Brown 2000-02-28 18:17:59 UTC
fixed before final 6.2 release.
