    Programs installed but another app doesn't see it?

    I just downloaded CentOS 4 (which is built from RHEL 4 source) and I tried getting an rpm installer. However when I try to install it says Python 2.0 or greater wasn't found. The system came with 2.4. I've run into scenarios like this before where a program is looking for an app and says it's the wrong version, etc. A system python -V command shows it's the 2.4 version. How do I resolve this? Is there a way to find out, with source or RPM files, what exact file it is looking for?

    Are you trying to install the CentOS from RPM or source? Did you install Python from RPM or source? Something is looking in the wrong spot. This is usually the case when you mix source and the default package manager install.

    Both were from RPM. I don't understand it. Even the default packages that come with the OS are newer than what's required. For example python with a -V option shows it's 2.3.4 when it says it need 2.0 or higher. I don't get it!
