I'm not familiar with RH7.1, but my guess is that it uses KDE2.x
You'd think by now that PyKDE would support KDE2.x, and in fact it
does. PyKDE2 is a few weeks away from an alpha release. KDE2 was a big
from KDE1, and we're still working on some needed enhancements to SIP
some issues related to getting everything to build.
I realize the version you have is PyKDE2.4, but the "2.4" tracks the SIP
version number, NOT the KDE version number. PyKDE2 is very similar to
so you might want to begin investigating PyQt knowing that what you pick
up there will transfer directly to PyKDE.
PyKDE2.4 still supports KDE1 (and you have to build Qt with Qt1.4x to
it), but KDE2 is different enough from KDE1 that at this date, I would
recommend waiting for the PyKDE2 release rather than investing effort in
