Question Python and Tkinter

Not so sure that this belongs here, but Python came installed on Fedoa, so I guess it is worth a shot. So, here it is:

I am trying to develop some Python apps that use the Tkinter module. Problem is that the module does not seem to be installed. According to the Python website, "You do not need to download Tkinter, it is already included in all standard Python distributions". So why isn't it in Fedora? Is Tk/Tcl not supported, or what?

Tkinter works fine on FC, once you have the package installed...

# yum install tkinter

Lightbulb Thanks

I don't know why I didn't think about that earlier. To think, I was going to build and install Tkinter from source (something I would not have enjoyed). Thanks for the help!
