I fired up python from the command line and got it to talk to me. Going to the Mandrake RPM gui tool that lists installed RPMs I pulled up the following results:
Looking at the RPMs that aren’t installed that have “python” in their name, there’s:
The description on this one is:The libraries and header files needed for Python development
Nothing has “SDK” as part of the name though. I hate to blindly install stuff, hoping to hit the right combination.
Also, I seem to be on Python 2.3 and you’re telling me to look for Python 2.2. Is there a problem with using 2.3? I downloaded the latest source.
