fetchmailconf error

Hi there,

I'm trying to setup mail retrieval via fetchmail6.2.5+SSL+NLS, on Slack 9.1. When I try to run fetchmailconf, I get the following message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/fetchmailconf", line 9, in ?
from Tkinter import *
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/lib-tk/", line 38, in ?
import _tkinter # If this fails your Python may not be configured for Tk
ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I looked to install the tkinter library files, but everything I've read says they're included in Python and can't be downloaded individually. I'm trying to find out if my problem is really the lack of this library or if I'm missing a configuration step for python. Any ideas?
