Hi, I run RH7.2 and just installed python version 2.2 over 1.5. I
think I used the rawhide RPMs. rpm told me there were some packages
which depended on v1.5 so I just downloaded new rpms of those packages
and installed them after installing v2.2. Then I installed the rdiff
and rdiff-backup rpms. I forget exactly what I did, but I think it's
relatively painless if you stick with rpms.
