Feature request #779
Python error at startup

Both 0.8.1 and 0.9 give an error when program is starting. When it tries to connect python it doesn't find SIP and Qt and so python can't be used. After installing python-sip4 and python-qt4 packages error disappeared.
So, my question is: shouldn't these packages be established as dependencies?

Replying to [comment:1 wonder]:
However, I'm wondering what error do you get at startup with QGIS 0.8.1 as it doesn't include python bindings.
QGIS packages are 0.8.1-3 but both splashscreen and about info show 0.9.0-Preview-1.
Without python-sip4 and python-qt4 error is:
Couldn't load SIP module. Python support will be disabled.
After installing only python-sip4 error is:
Couldn't load PyQt bindings. Python support will be disabled.

I'm afraid it's not solved. I have uninstalled python-qt4 and python-sip packages with no warning about any qgis package depending on them. After that, error dialog reappears when starting qgis:
Could not load SIP module
Python support will be diabled
Tested with 0.9.2~rc20080131 packages from debian.gfoss.it
