I don't really know.  The rpms are built on an ubuntu box, using

setup.py bdist_rpm

so I'm not exactly sure how they would work on fedora/suse.  If you
know you have python2.4 installed (whichi is the only dependency), you
can force the install with the --nodeps option.

I don't understand this question.

Glad it worked for you.  A plain source install from the tarball also
works, as described in the online instructions.
