This is just an idea, please try only if you need more risk in your OS.

wxPython is offered by as a package. The problem is that only the current version is available at that site, and is dependent on versions of Python-devel and wxwin-devel which each or both require Redhat 9, I think (newbie, take info with care)

I would look to install python-devel first, and try a sample python program. You could use the sample under to do this.

Name: wxPython
Distribution: PLD 1.0 (Ra)
Version: 2.3.1
Vendor: PLD (Notice that PLD is NOT Redhat)
Release: 1

wxPython requires python-devel and wxwin-devel

python-devel >= 2.2 (This requires Redhat 9, but possibly you could try it)

wxwin-devel = 2.3.1

Determine whether GTK or OpenMotif is more appropriate for Redhat 7.2, then

(Try at your own risk the following)
for openmotif/x11
or for GTK

Download the file(s) above, and type rpm -i <thefilename>.

Then if these do not work, then uninstall (rpm -u %file).

Else go to, click on download (left menu), and try the wxX11 2.4.2 stable release.

Good luck.
