[Getting back to my eric3 installation attempt ...]

rpm -ivh sip-4.3.1-1.i386.rpm sip-devel-4.3.1-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
         libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.4) is needed by sip-4.3.1-1.i386
[root at localhost software]#

My FC4 system appears to have glibc 2.3.5. Does that also have
to be upgraded? Is this chasing of dependencies (eric -> pyqt ->
sip -> glibc) really the standard installation path?
