What a huge mess. On Debian it's called python-dnspython and I don't have any issues with 1.9.4 version.

This is really weird. I am too using Python 2.7 and that just works on Debian. What version of Fedora are you using? I have a Fedora 15 VM where I might be able to reproduce it.

I'll try to manually install everything on a Fedora machine (what version did you use?) and see if I also get into trouble. I did run Blink on Fedora 15, so this really surprises me.
