    Hello,

    I have a problem completing the Dimdim installation.  I have followed the installation guide and have installed Python 2.5 because when I tried to use Python 2.4 I am getting the error the zlib is not found but it is installed:

    # wget http://download.cherrypy.org/cherrypy/3.1.0/CherryPy-3.1.0.tar.gz
    # tar xvzf CherryPy-3.1.0.tar.gz
    # cd CherryPy-3.1.0
    # chmod +x *
    # python2.5 setup.py install
    # cd ..
    # python2.5

    Python 2.5.4 (r254:67916, Feb 21 2009, 04:40:31)
    [GCC 4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat 4.1.2-42)] on linux2
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    >>>

    # import cherrypy

    Before I continue here is the evidence that Flup and Cherrypy are both installed:

    [root@dimdim src]# python2.5
    Python 2.5.4 (r254:67916, Feb 22 2009, 22:48:07)
    [GCC 4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat 4.1.2-42)] on linux2
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    >>> import cherrypy
    >>>

    [root@dimdim src]# python2.5

    >>>
    [root@dimdim src]#

    [root@dimdim src]# cd Dimdim_RPM_Package_v4.5
    [root@dimdim Dimdim_RPM_Package_v4.5]# rpm -ivh Dimdim-4.5_SF_i386.rpm

    [root@dimdim Dimdim_RPM_Package_v4.5]#

    Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

      If I try to use python 2.4 I get this:

      [root@dimdim src]# cd Dimdim_RPM_Package_v4.5
