Hi Johan,

I'll assume for the moment that you're running some kind of Linux
distribution.  Some distributions of Linux do include Python as part of
the main core, but they separate some of the standard library components,
like XML parsing, out of the main core, since not everyone has to do XML

It appears that your system's missing the 'xml.sax.saxutils' standard
library module.  If you are running a linux distribution like Debian,
you'll probably need to grab the 'python-xml' package:


This all assumes, of course, that you're running a standard Linux
distribution like Debian.  *grin* Can you tell us more details about your
system's configuration?  That'll help us to better pinpoint the issue.

Good luck to you.
