Problem installing AVG free


I am new to Linux, migrating from many years with Windows.

I have successfully installed Fedora Core 5 on a new PC.

I am working in the Gnome desktop and and trying to install AVG free on my system. The installation process terminates with an 'Error resolving dependencies' message:

"python-gtk>=2.0.0 is needed by package avg71fls"

I have looked at the packages on my system and I have a package 'pygtk2-2.8.4-1.1.i386', but not the one mentioned in the message. I have looked at the Fedora Core Package list and the Extras Package list, and as I expected, the missing package is not there.

So, I have 3 questions:

Where should I get the package "python-gtk" from?

Is it perfectly safe to simply install this package without conflicting with 'pygtk2'

Has anyone installed AVG free on Fedora 5 without problems?

I certainly have been using AVG free in Windows without problems, and was pleased to see that they do a Linux version.

Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

It is said that there is no real need for a Linux virus scanner, unless scaning windows machines/shares.

but for fedora core, you should be looking at yum for your software needs, it handles dependencies and al lsorts. - has a good section on Yum
