How is it failing?  If you are getting a traceback, please attach the complete
exception message to this bug report.
Comment 2 Alastair Neil 2007-05-04 15:30:13 EDT
The crux seems to be this:
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.5/lib-dynaload/cStringIO.so : invalid ELF header

Now I look at this error it seems likely to me that this is due to a bad DVD
image or media.
