openxenmanager installation problem



I am trying to install openxencenter to control my VMs I followed the

instructions but when I tried to start it I got:

File "window.py", line 44, in

import gtkvnc

ImportError: No module named gtkvnc

does any one face this problem before.

I tried to comment the import line and xencenter started but console

tab is not working and it is looking for gtkvnc module.

Note: I already installed all these packages, I was thinking that may

be one of them will work but no , I am still receiving the error.

Installed Packages

gtk-vnc.i386 0.3.8-3.el5


gtk-vnc.x86_64 0.3.8-3.el5


gtk-vnc-devel.i386 0.3.8-3.el5


gtk-vnc-python.x86_64 0.3.8-3.el5


gtk-vnc-devel.x86_64 0.3.8-3.el5


any help please?

    I'm hardly an expert and have never used openxencenter, but, could your problem be due to the mixture of i386 and x86_64 packages? Having -devel packages for both architectures could be the problem. I'm only guessing however.

    thanks for your reply I already removed that one for i386 because: uname -i is x86_64 but still having a problem I tried every thing and I found when I run:
    # python2.4 import gtkvnc there is no errors but when I tried
    #python2.5 import gtkvnc
    I got:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
    ImportError: No module named gtkvnc
    so I think it is python problem because python2.4 can import this package and 2.5 cann't.
    Does any one know how to fix this.

    Thanks in advance
