I need to write a GUI for a vanilla RHEL3 box (with no extra software
installed on it). I figure Python / pygtk2 is a good choice for this,
as it’s installed by default. (Ruby is 1.6.8 on that box, and
ruby-gnome2 isn’t installed). The GUI will do various RPM-related
things – it’s a program that will examine a machine’s configuration
and figure out what additional RPMs need to be installed before a user
can run our software.
I don’t know much python, although I did write a small program in it a
few years ago. Any pointers on where I could get a quick introduction
to it? I don’t need an introduction to programming, I need an
introduction to Python (and preferably from a Rubyist POV).
