Can you confirm that the necessary libraries and header files are installed
on your system?  There are probably two rpms, named something like bz2 and
bz2-devel which must be installed.

Network tests are disabled by default because they assume a connection to
the net.  You can run them like

    ./python Lib/regrtest.py -uall

This will enable all tests which are disabled by default.
