Try rpm -U python-1.5.2...(full name) and rpm -U tkinter-1.5.2...(full
name) to upgrade instead of install. Or else try rpm -q python, and rpm
-q tkinter to check that they're installed, which version, then rpm -e
python, rpm -e tkinter to uninstall them (no version numbers). Then try
installing the updated versions.
