LOL, w/o even reading his post your reply shows why he is on my ignore list.

Sorry for any hurt feelings, but it was so funny I couldn't resist.

BTW, deepclutch you might read some of the many links provided by others on asking smart questions. The granddaddy is by Eric S. Raymond & Rick Moen. (Google it). In the environment they describe, you would need an asbestos jump suit. Here on LQ, cs-cam's reply is the worst flame I've seen you get, & it's pretty mild.

Hope this is polite enough to help you mend your ways, rather than just piss you off.

Then PyGTK is either not installed or installed in the wrong prefix. Either way Python can't find it, try this command to find where it's located:
Code:
find / -name pygtk.pyo

Well as you can see PyGTK is installed fror Python 2.3 but not for Python 2.4. That's what you get for using a package system that allows multiple versions to be installed at once. The answer is to either reinstall by building PyGTK against the newer Python version or see if there is a python24-pygtk package in the Etch repositories.
