program can't find python-qt

Post#1 by nucleus » 03 Feb 2011, 11:00

I wanna install eric4 - an IDE for python.
It needs:

python (preinstalled in slax-remix)
qt4 (preinstalled in slax-remix)
pyqt (python-bindings to qt4 - installable with "slapt-get --install pyqt")
QScintilla (downloaded and installed)
QScintilla2 Python bindings (not found on the web)
sip (installed)


When running "python install.py" the setup says:

Checking dependencies
Python Version: 2.6.5
Sorry, please install PyQt4.
Error: No module named PyQt4.QtCore


So obviously it doesn't find the python-qt-bindings even though they are installed. How can I fix that? Already tried a reinstall with slapt-get but no success. :(
When I post a thread then actually because:
-I wanna discuss WHY I do this or that
-I like linux so much and everything with open source
-I want it as complicate as possible
-I wanna recompile my kernel
-I adore other peoples computer-knowledge

Porteus has Pykde added by default and not PyQt. get it from here:
ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/slac ... 6_64-1.txz

i have found that eric4 package for 64bits is not updated for 'slackware-current'. all what you need to do is to grab eric4 from here:
http://download.salixos.org/x86_64/13.0 ... 64-1cd.txz
and download rest of deps from Slackware-13.1 (and not current):
http://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ftp.slackw ... kware64/l/
grab: PyQt4, QScintilla and sip.
otherwise you will get an API version conflict.
