wxpython install help needed

it was all good a few days ago, then i went to run SPE today and it couldnt find wx

[root@localhost _spe]# python
Spe Error: Please install the right version of wxPython:
No module named wx

SPE v0.8.4.b (c)2003-2007

If spe fails to start:
 - type "python --debug > debug.txt 2>&1" at the command prompt
   (or if you use tcsh: "python --debug >& debug.txt")
 - send debug.txt with some info to[at]

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 48, in ?
    import ConfigParser, sys, os, wx
ImportError: No module named wx
[root@localhost _spe]#
so i installed the wxPython rpms again from the official site, the common package had no problem and was fine, but when i install the other part, i get this:

Some requested packages cannot be installed:
wxPython2.8-gtk2-unicode- (due to unsatisfied
Continue installation anyway?

I have looked all over google and in the package lists for the repositories i use with urpmi.... i CANNOT FIND IT... havnt even seen it come up in any search yet.... anyone know anything about

Oh, and GNOME wont load anymore either.... i dont know why, it just hangs at the splash screen and never finishes loading, so now im stuck with KDE which i dispise
