Don't use PackageManager, it's outdated. Use the packages at:


I think the ones for:
Mac OS X 10.3 (stock Python 2.3.0)

might work with your system, but you're probably better off installing 
python 2.4 from:


and using these:

Mac OS X 10.3+ (Python 2.4.1 framework build)

They'll work on 10.4

We really need to update the pythonmac.org web site! (and Jack's Page)
