Installing Python 3.2 Tkinter on Linux

A quick note for the install. Tkinter is not installed by default with Python 3.2 on Linux unless the tk development pack is installed. Where that is documented I could not say.

On Red Hat derived distributions this would be using (under user root):
yum install tk-devel
Make sure you do this before building Python. It is required for idle, which is named idle3 (and that is not obvious either).
