Environment

For more, see Python.

The following archives will have to be installed (source packages: python python-pygtk python-pycairo python-pygobject):

python-core python-misc python-lang python-pygtk

If you want to test this and do not have a build environment, you can 'ipkg install' the python components from the ScaredyCat repositories.

NOTE: These packages take up a considerable amout of space (about 10 MByte), make sure that you have enough free space or install the packages to the media card as explained in package management.
