ok I have 2.4 and I read what u sent me to as shown blow there is a way to fix it...

"Hi,
It works, if you have this:
-
File "/usr/bin/bittorrent-curses", line 18, in ?
from BitTorrent.platform import install_translation
ImportError: No module named BitTorrent.platform
-
Just check if your /usr/bin/python is linked with /usr/bin/python2.4
if not do:
1/ rm /usr/bin/python
2/ ln -s /usr/bin/python2.3 /usr/bin/python

3/ Enjoy"

Ok how do i do this? Just check if your /usr/bin/python is linked with /usr/bin/python2.4

Type "ls -l /usr/bin/python". If it's linked, you should see something like "python -> python2.4". Post the output if you're unsure.

/usr/bin/python isn't the actual executable, it's a link to python2.3 (like a shortcut), so if you remove that link it just means you'd have to run python as python2.3. As for following the instructions, that should be ok, providing that that 3 should be a 4, cos otherwise you'll just be recreating the link you've got now.
