Re: Python 2.1 can't find _tkinter.dll. Is there a solution?

Thanks, my question was about the pre-built python that downloads and
installs with the current release of cygwin.

If I understand your point, this pre-built release needs to be uninstalled
and then one should build python from scratch?. I don't have a problem with
that. I would be mildly curious about why the pre-built release is there.
