Im trying to start the bittorrent-client from but i get the following error:

maggot@~: bittorrent
>>> unable to setrlimit not allowed to raise maximum limit
Traceback (most recent call last):

from BitTorrent.GUI_wx.DownloadManager import MainLoop
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/BitTorrent/GUI_wx/", line 29, in <module>
import wx
ImportError: No module named wx

The bittorrent-curses command works great but i would like the GUI to work aswell.. anyone have any ideas what's wrong here?
