I have just installed pylint using:
sudo pacman -S pyliny

It pulled a few dependencies with it, and installed fine.
However, running pylint from the cli just errors out like this:

$ pylint
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/pylint", line 3, in <module>
from pylint import lint
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/pylint/", line 46, in <module>
from logilab.common.graph import ordered_nodes
ImportError: cannot import name ordered_nodes

Googling for this error doesn't issue anything relevant...

Also, running:
tkinter is not available

Which should not be an issue since:
$ pacman -Q tk
tk 8.5.8-2

Is this general or do I have a somehow "messed up" install?

Additional info:
* package version(s)
pylint 0.21.1-1

* config and/or log files etc.
Not relevat

Steps to reproduce:
Install pylint from [community] and run it.

Any more information required?
This task depends upon

general problem i suppose. for now i just grabbed the latest versions of pylint, logilab-astng and logilab-common from their website. imho this has nothing to do with the gui, just the interfaces of their libraries changed, and so pylint cannot find them anymore. (thus updating fixes the problem.) i notified the arch maintainer, so the packages get updated.

Hopefully that will solve the problem.
Simply recompiling won't solve it...
