    Default openSUSE 11.1+awn extras woes


    I recently switched over from ubuntu to opensuse and am currently
    running the latest distro and have run into a problem with awn. I was
    able to install awn and everything is working correctly but when I try
    to install the awn-extra-applets I get an error message that says
    "nothing provides libpython2.5.so.1.0 needed by
    awn-extras-applets-0.2.6-1.pm.1.i586". I've tried installing both
    through YaST and through terminal, but alas no success and i'm no linux
    expert to try and troubleshoot what's wrong unfortunately. I looked
    through the forums and couldn't find anything posted with a similar
    problem so if there is something posted about this already then I
    apologize but I would highly appreciate any and all help.

    If you go into YaST > Software > Install Software and search for
    libpython, you'll see the library is there, only it's a newer version.
    If it's not checked yet, check it and click Accept, so it gets
    installed. Now try out your program again. If it's still complaining
    about the missing library, you have to find the installed library (man
    find) on your system, and then create a symlink to the library in the
    same folder that it resides in. You then rename the symlink to
    libpython2.5.so.1.0 and hopefully everything should work.

    SousukeSagara - wondering if you ever found a repo for the awn-extras
    for 11.1. I've been looking for the same thing.
