    i have python version 2.5.2
    im trying to install file "PythonCard-0.8.2-1mdk.noarch.rpm"
    of course that needs wxPython
    i tried installing
    "wxPython-common-gtk2-unicode-2.8.9.1-fc7_py2.5.i386.rpm"
    and got a dependency error that looked like:
    "python(abi) = 2.5 is needed by ...."
    tried installing older version
    "wxPython-common-gtk2-unicode-2.5.4.1-mdk101_py2.3.i586.rpm"
    and get a whole list of failed dependencies

    ive worked in this for a long time, its starting to make me mad

    im not new to linux, but i am new to suse. i've always used .deb's and
    apt-get...

    Hi
    mandrake and fedora rpms will not play well with openSUSE.... Have a
    look here and search on wxPython;
    Get It

    Then download the pythoncard source file and look at the readme file on
    what to do (It's just a matter of placing in the right directory for
    your python environment).

    thanks, i get no more errors now.
    everything installs fine up until the last part of PythonCard install
    when i run (as root) "./setup.py install" i get "unable to open
    /usr/lib/python2.5/config/Makefile (No such file or directory)"
    i went to the directory and there is no config folder.. strange.. i
    opened all other versions of the python folders, and the only one that
    DID have a config folder was 2.6, and the makefile had version 2.6
    written on the code on the inside, so i figured there might be more
    version-specific code inside, but i may be wrong.
    is it safe to copy the 2.6 version of the makefile into the 2.5 folder?
    or am i missing something?

    the 2.6 makefile has in it:

    # === Variables set by configure
    VERSION= 2.6

    if you did not understand what i am trying to say

    ok i made a workaround for that (not completely sure it will work) then
    run it again and i get "/usr/include/python2.5/pyconfig.h (No such file
    or directory)"
    i even tried reinstalling python from source code...(which is also
    where i found the Makefile that i used as a workaround from previously
    haha)
    since it's found 2 different missing files right off, i believe i am
    missing a package or have the wrong version.. any ideas?

    Hi
    You need to install python-devel. Generally when configuring from
    source and it stops on an error, you need to install a corresponding
    devel rpm.

    ok ok ok realized that while python directories should have been
    /usr/include/python2.5/ and /usr/lib/python2.5/ it was installing to
    /usr/local/ whatever same directories
    so just rm, cp.. done!
    go back to PythonCard.. installs, no errors.
    but if i type pythoncard in terminal it says command not found.
    if i type pythoncard inside the python command prompt (just type python
    in terminal) it says something about it not being defined...
    but it doesnt says its not installed so i guess thats a good thing
    right?
    also after this install there is a bunch of extra new apps installed
    like pycrust and pyshell and programmers notepad, but none of these
    launch and some of them give a bug report..
    well thanks for the help so far, im done for tonight...

    edit: ahhh totaly missed your last post lol will install that now and
    see what happens. will probably fix those programs not loading properly
