Hi Paul:

I've downloaded the above rpm and attempted to install but get a
dependency error  (see below).  I've tried yum from regular, extras and
development repos with no success at locating python-abi.

[root linux2 bittorrent-FC3]# rpm -Uvh bittorrent-4.1.1-4.fc3.noarch.rpm
warning: bittorrent-4.1.1-4.fc3.noarch.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature:
NOKEY, key ID b56a8bac
error: Failed dependencies:
      python-abi = 2.3 is needed by bittorrent-4.1.1-4.fc3.noarch

Would you please inform me where that is available?  Also, I'm not sure
which rpm files are needed, just the bittorrent file, or the
bittorrent-gui and/or wxPythonGTK2.

Would the fact that I'm trying to install on FC4T3 be a problem since the
rpms are for FC3?

Thanks, Tom


Try extras development.

Fc4T3 installed.

Hi Jim-
What mirror were you using for extras-dev? I keep getting errors (more than 50, mostly about bad tags and parser errors)

With development version of yum, I am using whatever comes with FC4T3 to get mirror listings. I believe the lists are random or based on the originating IP addresses geographic location. The only configuration that I did was to get the media related repos and it was added in the /etc/yum.repos.d directory. Extras should have been added automatically. The repos are seperate files, but will chain with the repos.d being cat outputs. I am straight development right now, but plan to download FC4 for several machine installs after reports here are observed.
