:)  Ive got someplace to install it when you have something you want to
pass out for testing.

ANyone within SGI who would like an account on Linux to do development
work is welcome to it. Just send me a message with the userid/password
you want to use (and your UID if you have it).


It appears as though we may have a problem with python as well:

[root@linux RPMS]# glint
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "./", line 22, in ?
    from Tkinter import *
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/lib-tk/", line 5, in ?
    import _tkinter # If this fails your Python is not configured for Tk
ImportError: /usr/X11R6/lib/ undefined symbol:

[root@linux RPMS]# rpm -Uvh --force pythonlib-1.22-1.noarch.rpm 
package pythonlib-1.22-1 is for a different architecture
error: pythonlib-1.22-1.noarch.rpm cannot be installed


[root@linux RPMS]# rpm -Uvh --force tksysv-1.0-3.noarch.rpm 
package tksysv-1.0-3 is for a different architecture
error: tksysv-1.0-3.noarch.rpm cannot be installed

although I believe this last one might be intentional, is there a reason
to include it if it is unuseable?
