3.6. RHEA-2012:0183 — new package: python-ctypes

A new python-ctypes package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The python-ctypes package provides a foreign function library for Python. It provides C compatible data types, and allows calling functions in DLLs or shared libraries. It can be used to wrap these libraries in pure Python.
This enhancement update adds the python-ctypes package to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. (BZ#601661)

Note

This package is being added as a dependency of the iotop package.
All users who require python-ctypes are advised to install this new package.
