Interesting... I can't seem to find the original post... anyways...

I haven't built PyQt or sip or PyKDE for RH 8.0. However, there is no reason 
why it shouldn't work as far as I know.

Two things you may notice with the RedHat RPMs that RedHat provides:
1) They build PyQt and sip against Python 1.5. It is very unlikely you will 
want to use Python 1.5.
2) PyKDE probably doesn't work.

The major thing you may need to do to get PyKDE to work properly is patch up 
the sip files to match whatever "version" of KDE RedHat uses. They have, in 
the past, incorporated only part of some updates to KDE, rendering the KDE 
version number useless. I had to go through each header file in KDE and match 
it with the sip file in PyKDE and make sure it was running the right version 
for each possibility.
