Ok, I have these installed:
rpm -qa | grep wx

The fc6 ones are from the python.org site. They are for for wx widgets
and gtk (my experiments).

Yea, at once I played with that also but when you have a client that
does not know anything about the command line it is hard for them to use

a --nodeps install of audacity (from the forums i read that) but after I
got all the deps correct then I did not have to do that on my clients
