Yes, and that seems to be the root of all evil for me - everything I
install wants to go into the /usr/<lib or bin>/python2.2 directories
instead of /usr/local/<lib or bin>/python2.3!
Forget the RPMs, compile everything from source is my advice (I
installed 2.3.3, VPython, Installer, wxPython, PyQt, SIPs,
What annoyed me was when I was evaluating LindowsOS and "apt-get
install libwxgtk24" installed everything for me (including Python
2.3.3!) in about 3 minutes as apposed to about 8 hours of compilation
time and hunting around for source tarballs! It was even easier that
Windows I think!
