fopetesl Posted August 19, 2008 Report Share Posted August 19, 2008 (edited) Running Mandriva 2008.1 on ACER Laptop. Have python 2.5.2 installed. Would like to have SPE running but get this message when I try to install: [root@localhost tmp]# /usr/share/mc/extfs/rpm run /home/peter/tmp/spe-0.8.4.h-0.2.fc8.noarch.rpm INSTALL Installing ""'/home/peter/tmp/spe-0.8.4.h-0.2.fc8.noarch.rpm'"" error: Failed dependencies: python(abi) = 2.5 is needed by spe-0.8.4.h-0.2.fc8.noarch [root@localhost tmp]# I looked at this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ython%28abi%29 and although the rpm is a Fedora 8 one, (& the thread), none of the suggestions seem to apply, (I can't find a Mandriva rpm). BTW, it works OK on my 'main' machine with Mandriva 2008.0 Downgrading doesn't seem a reasonable option What is python(abi)? Edit: I came across this link: http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.p...da873451d01facc which suggests that it's equivalent to an API. My problem is where to find this :blink: I had thought to uninstall python 2.5.2 and install a slightly older version but there's no option to remove 2.5 in software manager Edit: If I run: rpm -q --provides python | grep -Fw 'python(abi)' I get nothing. The same query with just 'python' shows four matches. So I don't appear to have the ABI installed.
