OpenSSL is irrelevant. If it isn't available, or doesn't provide md5, 
then the hashlib library will use its own implementation. But the _md5 
module is missing in the pysibelius Python on your RedHat system.

As I said, your Python installation is seriously broken. Required modules 
are just *gone*.

pysibelius appears to have patched Python in some way, because strange 
unexpected error messages are being printed that do not happen on a 
normal unpatched Python, e.g.:

ERROR:root:code for hash sha224 was not found.

That is not a normal Python error message. That looks like something 
added by pysibelius.
