Very odd. Whats in your /etc/resolv.conf file? dhcp should get a list
of dns servers when it gets an IP address and add them to that file. 
Is that not happening?

This is Fedora Core 6?
Can you tell me what the exact error message is?
As far as I know right now there is only one package with a broken
dependency in all of Fedora Core 6 + Fedora Extras (linphone). 
In fact I don't see any python-gnome package out there off hand...

I'll let someone who knows Ubuntu answer this one? :)
