I received the following message when invoking redhat-config-users (User Manager)..

I am running RedHat Linux 7.3 and keep up with all the updates...

 I tried to run User Manager and received the following messages and User
 Manager no longer works and I can't find out what is wrong... Any


 file "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/". line 25, in ? import libuser
 ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/ undefiined symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_AsUTF8String

Sent note to python-list based on the following respnse.. thanks Brentt C.

Looks like a C extension module that Red Hat distributes (you can tell it
isn't a part of Python because it is in the site-packages directory) is
missing the definition of a variable.  Without access to the original C
code there is nothing anyone can do.

It would be best to ask this question on python-list at (this
address is for web site related issues only).  That list is a gatewary to
comp.lan.python and you have a better chance of getting help there.  And
since it is a Red Hat issue chances are you are not the only person to
have run into it and thus there is most likely someone out there with an
answer for you.
