I was going to install this to get Marble, but decided to install Marble as a standalone package from

I couldn't get kdebindings to compile, it gave me an error message about too many 
Python signatures, something even Google had never heard of.  I too have no interest in Python,
only installed it for dependencies for something or other.

I got PyKDE4 from svn, which also gave me problems with compiling(it just stopped).  I eventually
did something unheard of in LFS circles - I downloaded a rpm package and installed it. Urrh. The first from over 275 packages installed from
source.  And your're right I built SIP from the above address - without problems.



P.S I've given up on PyKDE4 and uninstalled it.  Will now push on to complete a brand new system
