Any clue anyone how to pass this by ??

Hi Patrick.  We were hoping that people with Python 2.5 would
generally also have 2.4 for compatability reasons.  Apparently that
isn't always the case.  What distribution are you running?  We could
make a separate Python 2.5 RPM, but it would be nice to find a
solution which avoids that.  After all, I'm still celebrating us not
having to have x86 and x86_64 versions like we did with NmapFE.  I
think the only difference is that this needs to be installed in the
Python 2.5 module directory rather than 2.4.

Does anyone know a good way to handle this in RPMs?  We would be
interested in seeing RPMs for Python scripts which handle both
versions without requiring separate rpms?

Note that you should still be able to install from the Nmap tarball
(source distribution).  Or you could install Python 2.4 for
