I want to install mailman.
when I try to configure it I got this error message:
checking for --with-python... no
checking for python... /usr/bin/python
checking Python interpreter... /usr/bin/python
checking Python version... 2.4
checking that Python has a working distutils... configure: error:

***** Distutils is not available or is incomplete for /usr/bin/python
***** If you installed Python from RPM (or other package manager)
***** be sure to install the -devel package, or install Python
***** from source. See README.LINUX for details

I downloaded Distutil from python.org <http://python.org>

I wanted to install this one but I got another error message in running
python setup.py install

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "setup.py", line 30, in ?
packages = ['distutils', 'distutils.command'],
File "/home/soccer/mohammad/python/Distutils-1.0.2/distutils/core.py", line 
101, in setup
_setup_distribution = dist = klass(attrs)
File "/home/soccer/mohammad/python/Distutils-1.0.2/distutils/dist.py", line 
130, in __init__
setattr(self, method_name, getattr(self.metadata, method_name))
AttributeError: DistributionMetadata instance has no attribute 'get___doc__'

How can I solve this problem?!
