Well, I am running mostly testing with kde from unstable because of the
constant breakage of kde in testing and I get no conflicts for python and
I've allways used apt to keep up-to-date. Here is the output of:
dpkg -l|grep python
ii dcoppython 2.2.2-3 Python bindings for DCOP
ii python 2.1.1-4 An interactive object-oriented scripting lan
ii python-gdk-iml 0.6.8-14 GTK gdk_imlib support module for Python.
ii python-glade 0.6.8-14 Put a bit of python code behind interfaces b
ii python-gnome 1.4.1-14 PyGNOME -- Python bindings for GNOME.ii
python-gtk 0.6.8-14 GTK support module for Python.
ii python-numeric 20.2.0-3 Numerical (matrix-oriented) Mathematics for
ii python1.5-base 1.5.2-18.4 An interactive object-oriented scripting lan
ii python2-base 2.0.1-1 An interactive object-oriented scripting lan
ii python2.1 2.1.1-4 An interactive object-oriented scripting lan
so it look like I've got both python1.5-base and python2-base installed
without conflict. Here also is the output of:
dpkg -l|grep Office
ii kchart 1.1.1-2 a chart drawing program for the KDE Office S
ii kformula 1.1.1-2 a formula editor for the KDE Office Suite
rc killustrator 1.1-beta2-3 a vector graphics tool for the KDE Office Su
ii kivio 1.1.1-2 a flowcharting program for the KDE Office Su
ii koffice 1.1.1-2 KDE Office Suite
ii koffice-dev 1.1.1-3 common libraries for KOffice (development fi
ii kontour 1.1.1-2 a vector graphics tool for the KDE Office Su
ii koshell 1.1.1-2 the KDE Office Suite workspace
ii kpresenter 1.1.1-2 a presentation program for the KDE Office Su
rc krayon 1.1-beta2-3 an image editor for the KDE Office Suite
ii kspread 1.1.1-2 a spreadsheet for the KDE Office Suite
ii kugar 1.1.1-2 a business report maker for the KDE Office S
ii kword 1.1.1-2 a word processor for the KDE Office Suite
showing all the parts of koffice on my system. One suggestion, try apt-get
instead of dselect. I find apt to be far more intellegent in sorting out
dependancies and installing things in the correct order than dselect. The
only advantage I've seen with dselect is it will inform you of suggests and
recommends whereas apt-get just seems to ignore these.
I hope this gives you a bit more information for figuring out where your
problems are coming from.
