Hi Ron,

You might want to ask this on a more general forum.  The Tutor mailing
list is for teaching beginners how to design and write Python
programs.  Installation and system administration issues are a little
out of our scope.

You might try Python-list: https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list
