Hi Michael,

I've been working on building the AGtk 2.2 on Fedora Core 2.

I've asked that the 'Requires' dependency on 'wxPythonGTK-py2.2' be changed
to 'wxPython' in the AccessGrid.spec.in file in CVS. With this change, the
wxPythonGTK-py2.2 package available on the RH7.3 AGtk 2.2 download page and
wxPythonGTK2 from Fedora Extras will both satisfy the 'wxPython' dependency.

Unfortunately wxPythonGTK2 available from Fedora Extras (www.fedora.us)
doesn't work with GNOME 2.6, due to a bug with wxGTK2,  see:

Fortunately, as the wxGTK 2.4.2 bug report states, in the interim there is a
version of wxGTK2 that works with Fedora Core 2 available at:

xawtv no longer comes with Fedora Core 2, but you can install the version
from Fedora Core 1.

>          libssl.so.2 is needed by AccessGrid-2.2-6

I don't get that problem when built from source.

You might want to wait till AccessGrid.spec.in is updated in CVS before
building from source. I think I could make an AGtk 2.2 RPM for Fedora Core 2
available in the interim (I need to get it from my home PC), till
AccessGrid.spec.in gets updated in CVS.
