Unfortunately different rpm-based distributions (e.g. Mandrake,
Redhat) have decided to package python 2.x differently so a single RPM
cannot install and operate cleanly on all simultaneously.  See FAQ
question 5 ( about
redhat installation.

    Now (in 0.9.x) I'm making redhat-compatible RPMs, so in the future
it'll only be a problem for Mandrake and other users..
