"Cannot Find Missing Dependency: Python(abi)-2.5"

Whenever I try to install the latest version of Screenlets onto Fedora 11, I get an error stating that it "Cannot Find Missing Dependency: Python(abi)-2.5". I already have Python-2.6.x.fc11 installed, so shouldn't I be covered? And if not, then where can I find Python(abi)-2.5?

P.S. I am guessing the '(abi)' probably means a library...

Thanks for that link, but now there is a new problem...
Whenever I try to install the RPM it gives me an error:
Can't install /home/Name/Download/python-2.5.2-1.fc10.i386.rpm as no transaction
Any ideas on what to do?

Probably not a good idea : Installing the fc 10 package
will overwrite /usr/bin/python and then : no 'yum' !

'yum' + all other admin tools uses python 2.6
