Python source directory


im trying to install pyGTK, and you need to know the directory where python was installed. i installed it using an rpm, does anyone have any idea where it could be? this is what i need to do


Compilation
===========

PyGTK uses the standard autotools for the build infrastructure. To
build, it should be as simple as running:

$ ./configure --prefix=<prefix where python is installed>
$ make
$ make install

You can find out where a rpm installed its files with:
rpm -ql python | less

You may need to install the python-devel package.
