I was looking at running Wah!Cade (MAME frontend) on pdaXrom, and I found that pygtk2 was required, which in turn needed a newer version of Python to compile.

So I've now got a full build of Python 2.5, and have to meet the next dependency, pygobject >=2.5.1 (or something linke that...).

I built pygobject and installed it, but the system still sees the older version, which I cannot determine an IPK for.

It seems that Python has been broken into -base -xml -net -....

So my question is this:

Does my Python 2.5 IPK contain evrything these other packages have, or are Python-Base and Python, separate packages?

My gut tells me that there will bw all kinds of hell to pay when I remove all those Python-partial packages.

There is a dedicated python thread on this subject.
From what I recall there is a full "python" package. Those who don't need it all, can use "python-core" and the "little-packages" you talk about.

I guess it's finding it somewhere in zgcc's dirs ... if that's what you use.
