Python Idle

I've downloaded the newest version of python, & tcl/tk. However IDLE (bundled python ide) does not seem to work. I keep getting: ** IDLE can't import Tkinter. Your Python may not be configured for Tk. ** ". I reinstalled the rpms and still the same message. Could someone help me get IDLE to work.

Also, on the command line interpreter when I call "import _tkinter" I get an "importError: No module named _tkinter"
