Difficulty running Griffith under CentOS 5


I downloaded and installed Griffith, a movie database program, through yum under CentOS 5 (up to date) with no error messages. When I click on the menu item I get the little swirling bit around the cursor like it's loading but then nothing. The swirl stops and nothing is running. Also, no error messages telling that anything is missing.

Does anybody have any suggestions on how to get this working? I googled but couldn't find anything.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Please open a terminal and type: griffith (/usr/bin/griffith)
to see if you get an error-message.
(/usr/bin/griffith is a link to /usr/share/griffith/lib/griffith)

When I typed in the command without the parentheses, I got:

Error: missing modules:
pysqlite2

I checked yumex but it's not listed as an available package.

What should I do now?

Thanks for your help.
