Installing Gyach Enhanced / pY! Voice Chat :(


I tried to install Gyach Enhanced / pY! Voice Chat on Mandrake 10.1 (fresh install just hours before) so i can chat to my mates using voice, i clicked on the rpm file which i downloaded from http://mesh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourc....6-1.i586.rpm, clicked install it and it said

Some package requested cannot be installed:
Gyach-Enhanced-pYVoiceChat-1.0.6-1.i586 (due to unsatisfied pygtk[>= 1.99])
do you agree ?
tar:/home/ace/Applications/pygtk-2.2.0.tar.gz/pygtk-2.2.0

Then i clicked ok.d ok.

I googled pygtk, found and downloaded http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sourc...-2.2.0.tar.gz, is this the right thing to do but i cant install it, i dont know how. I extracted it and i dont know what to do.

Is this just for gnome because at the moment i'm using kde, do i have to switch, i ask because it says gnome in the address to the file

I'm very new to linux, please help

after extracting that
go to that diectory fromur shell using "cd"
then read the INSTALL file
it usually says
./configure
make
make install

also i skipped this dependency for gyach and it works fine for me

I am on Redhat 9 and i and having the same dependency issue. I tried to update pygtk but the update stops because my version is less than 1.99. This seems odd. I installed Gyach with no depencies. When I try to run the program nothing happens.

I'm running FC3 i have the newest pygtk but it still asks for the 1.99 any thoughts

OK...I installed the alsa-lib rpm required by Gyach then installed Gyach with no depencies and it works; however, Gyach crashes at random.
