I'd suggest you ask the hp porting archive people for more
help. They've done the packaging for it. It looks (to me)
like you need to install a few other packages first, or at
the same time.

This indicates that your python install is pretty much hosed.
The timemodule is a very very fundamental and basic module - if
it's missing, chances are lots more is as well.
