[Idle-dev] Installing IDLE

I'm trying to install the new version of IDLE lib and have encountered
the following

When I attempt to use auto completion I get the following error:

Exception in Tkinter callback
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 1345, in __call__
    return self.func(*args)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/idlelib/AutoComplete.py", line 63, in force_ope
    self.open_completions(True, False, True)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/idlelib/AutoComplete.py", line 152, in open_com
    comp_lists = self.fetch_completions(comp_what, mode)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/idlelib/AutoComplete.py", line 181, in fetch_co
    (what, mode), {})
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/idlelib/rpc.py", line 211, in remotecall
    return self.asyncreturn(seq)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/idlelib/rpc.py", line 242, in asyncreturn
    return self.decoderesponse(response)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/idlelib/rpc.py", line 259, in decoderesponse
    raise RuntimeError, what
RuntimeError: Unsupported method name: 'get_the_completion_list'

The reason I placed the files under /usr/local is to avoid making
manual changes in the normal /usr hierarchy, as this is the domain of
my package management system.



PS I just realised that my previous post regarding Network Ports
wasn't signed. I was in a rush and neglected that detail.
