We need to know what installed /usr/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload/

`equery b /usr/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload/`
Comment 3 Robert Clark (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-05-18 16:12:05 UTC
Sorry, I should have mentioned earlier. equery returns nothing about the file.

I presumed with this one it would be more or less obvious to someone suitably experienced with python.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do to provide info.

Well, then delete it and move on; we cannot fix collisions with orphaned stuff.
