I had manually installed hashlib package & but still getting the same error as "python develop". Also all the necessary dependencies are install but still the same.

Appreciate for any help/solution.

this site does not exist, but they provide a link

I would try to edit the installerscript and change the link. And if this doesn't work, you should post the file as an attachment to your post.

Another question: isn't it possible to install the program with yum? I'm not very experienced with Centos, but normally I would prefer to install from the official repositories.

Actually I had installed hashlib manually from but still I am not able to run the script.Also I am able to resolve the same issue in open source through yum but getting the same error in enterprise & the issue is not able to resolve through yum so building the same through source.

Is older version of python (python 2.4) is the cause & need to be upgraded ?

Can you please provide the solution to the mentioned error.
