Hi. Thanks for the reply. I didn't know there was another mx to be
had. Anyway, "rpm -q --provides egenix-mx-base" returns:
egenix-mx-base = 2.0.1-1
Below is a slightly re-arranged "rpm -qi egenix-mx-base". (Arranged for
readability on an 80-character-wide console.)

When I install/upgrade the PostgreSQL RPM's, all of them work fine
except postgresql-python. It complains about an unsatisfied dependency:
no "mx". However, I have installed the RPM for egenix-mx-base... Is
there some other mx that I should be using? Or does the RPM spec file
need to be fixed at your end?
If anyone on this list is using the postgresql-python RPM, and has
satisfied the dependency the right way, could you do "rpm -qi mx" to
tell me where you got it?

Hot off the Red Hat 7.2 presses.
(Apparently overriding the dependency with a --nodeps works okay, but
I'd like to avoid that if possible.)
The dependency is currently declared by name. Can you do a quick
rpm -q --provides
for the egenix-mx-base package and mail me the results?
It seems to be the same package with a different name -- an unfortunate
