Great! Thanks a lot, Suchandra.

I downloaded ciphon 0.3.1 and when executed with ./ I get the

hedwig:/usr/local/src/ciphon-0.3.1$ ./ 
Use rpms for installation [N/y]? 
Update package and server list on startup [Y/n]? 
Force updates[N/y]? 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 118, in ?
    if config.getConfig().getParameter('autoupdate') == 'true':
  File "./", line 266, in getConfig
    config = Configuration()
  File "./", line 85, in __init__
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.1/xml/sax/", line 30, in
    parser = make_parser()
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.1/xml/sax/", line 88, in
    raise SAXReaderNotAvailable("No parsers found", None)
xml.sax._exceptions.SAXReaderNotAvailable: No parsers found

When I call the function xml.sax.make_parser() the same exception is
raised. Is there something missing in my installation?

Thanks again and keep the good work:
