Actually, I got burnt by the Python RPM in 6.1 and I haven't used it in
over six months.  I was referring to the Python in RH 6.2.  They did fix
the biggest errors in their RPMs somewhere along the Rawhide regime. 
They also finally added multithreading support.

Just FYI everyone, usually I use Oliver Andrich's RPMs, which you can
find on our mirror at


The python4linux group should have python 1.6 alpha RPMs up soon.
