I have unpacked PythonCAD-DS1-R35.tar.bz2   and installed the application
by running (as root)   python setup.py  install.

When executing   ./gtkpycad.py   i am getting this error :

[am at dyn-9-157-129-144 PythonCAD-DS1-R35]$ ./gtkpycad.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./gtkpycad.py", line 38, in ?
    from PythonCAD.Generic import imageio
  File "/stuff/am/src/PythonCAD-DS1-R35/PythonCAD/Generic/imageio.py",
line 34, in ?
    import xml.parsers.expat
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/_xmlplus/parsers/expat.py",
line 4, in ?
    from pyexpat import *
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/_xmlplus/parsers/pyexpat.so:
undefined symbol: XML_StopParser

This seems to suggest a version mismatch with the pyexpat module. What could i
try to make the application work?  Any ideas?

Operating system : Linux,   Mandriva 2007
Python : 2.4.3
Installed rpms :  pygtk2.0-2.10.1-1mdv2007.0
libexpat0-devel-1.95.8-3mdk, expat-1.95.8-3mdk
