[maemo-users] python question

Hi Zoran,

To do the update you have to remove all applications depending on 
python2.4, then python2.4-runtime itself. Just follow the instructions 
at PyMaemo webpage[1].

About package size it could be something with dependencies. For example, 
Python2.4 install some extra packages (libraries, etc). In the other 
hand, Python2.5 uses pre-installed packages. You don't miss any 
functionality. We are doing some changes in webpage contents and soon 
will be available a complete list of modules provided by PyMaemo2.5.

Another point: I recommend you to use OS2007-HackerEdition, since 
PyMaemo for OS2006 will be discontinued at OS2008's launch.
