You need to

After the upgrade to fetchmailconf-6.2.5-alt1 this program doesn't start,
complaining of absent tkinter module. As a matter of fact, it is installed
(tkinter22-2.2.3-alt3). This package is specified as required for
fetchmailconf, but the solution of problem is achieved only after the
installation of tkinter23.
As a matter of fact, fetchmailconf requires tkinter, that is provided by both
tkinter22 and tkinter23. It's likely that the reporter had python23 installed
and selected as the default Python interpreter. As things are set up now, Python
2.3 knows nothing about Python 2.2 modules, including Tkinter.
If this is the case, I resolve this bug as Invalid. It's not a responsibility of
the client package's maintainer to ensure that python and tkinter are set up
consistently. Moreover, there are no means for that in rpm, as far as I'm concerned.
Resolving to Invalid as promised earlier.
