Python RSVG not found under Mandriva

Just another quick comment with solution to problems with rendering SVG vector images under Python in Mandriva 2010.1. I was testing Python Cairo (PyCairo) and Python wrapper around RSVG library, trying to render SVG image using PyGame surface. It seemed that after installing python-cairo development libraries, there’s no PyRSVG. I’ve spent much time looking for it until finally I’ve realized that the wrapper is packaged in “gnome-python-desktop” package.

So if you want to use Cairo and RSVG for Python in Mandriva 2010.1 simply run under root:

# urpmi gnome-python-desktop

And you’re ready to rock.
