bittorrent and python


ok i read around about this, but still don't get it. i dl BT and latest version of python, i installed python and then tried to install BT, but it says i need the python-base (see below). what am i doing wrong, i am totally confused here. i also do notice that when i run python it says v2.2.2 and BT needs >=2.3, but i ran apt-get and it installed python for me - shouldn't it be 2.3 the latest version?

[root@localhost root]# cd ./appz
[root@localhost appz]# rpm -Uvh bittorrent-3.2.1b-5mdk.noarch.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
python-base >= 2.3 is needed by bittorrent-3.2.1b-5mdk
python-base is needed by bittorrent-3.2.1b-5mdk
[root@localhost appz]# python
Python 2.2.2 (#1, Feb 24 2003, 19:13:11)
[GCC 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-4)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

please help, i would really like to get this up and running.

thanks,

m

2.3 is the latest version of Python. Doesn't mean your apt repository is going to have it. I think that there's a rpm at www.python.org. Hopefully that will get you going. Unless there are other failed dependencies. ;^)

i have python 2.3 installed and it works:

[root@localhost root]# python2.3
Python 2.3 (#1, Aug 26 2003, 15:53:29)
[GCC 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>>

but, still get this:

[root@localhost appz]# rpm -Uvh bittorrent-3.2.1b-5mdk.noarch.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
python-base >= 2.3 is needed by bittorrent-3.2.1b-5mdk
python-base is needed by bittorrent-3.2.1b-5mdk

I should mention that I don't have bittorrent installed, but by looking at your post it seems that when you type "python" it reports 2.2.2. But when you type "python2.3" it reports version 2.3. Is there more than one version installed? What do you get when you type "rpm -qa | grep python"? And it looks like your using a Mandrake RPM, but your profile says RH 9. Could that have anything to do with it? Just a couple of thoughts.

thanks for the help. here's what i get with that:

[root@localhost root]# rpm -qa | grep python
gnome-python2-canvas-1.99.14-5
python2.3-2.3-4pydotorg
python2.3-docs-2.3-4pydotorg
python-optik-1.4-2
rpm-python-4.2-0.69
libxml2-python-2.5.4-1
gnome-python2-bonobo-1.99.14-5
python-devel-2.2.2-26
python2.3-tkinter-2.3-4pydotorg
python-2.2.2-26
mod_python-3.0.1-3
gnome-python2-gtkhtml2-1.99.14-5
gnome-python2-1.99.14-5
python2.3-tools-2.3-4pydotorg

i am still too new to know what all that means. how do you know that it is a Mandrake rpm that i'm using? when i downloaded python it was the linux rpms that i clicked on, found here:

http://www.python.org/2.3/rpms.html

do i need to uninstall/reinstall some stuff? i'm still not able to get BT installed yet. thanks again for your help.

i got it - and installed it. f*#k man, you really have to pay attention to every damn little detail with linux. i guess that is lesson number one. but, what a feeling of accomplishment when i'm done - it's not like clicking three times eh?

Great. Glad you got it. And, yeah, you do have to pay attention, or know where to ask for help! Take it easy.
