Yes, I`ve tried it and the installation did go smooth, but when I tried to
use the example in the documentation Python barfed some errors at me, then
died with a scream. I can probably recreate the errors and send you a copy
of the output.

I think the problem might be solved if I, sigh, re-install Red Hat 6.1 and
trash that oversized, over-featured Suse 6.2 Linux distro I got now. The Red
Hat version of Python came with all that stuff installed. There`s not enough
hours in a day to keep working on things like this. At least not right now.

Thanks for your interest though.

Best regards,
