Woody Install Problem: Site.py
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Excuse me if I don't sound like I know what I'm talking about, but well,
I don't - python is very new to me.
I have Debian Woody installation - stable packages only -> python2.1. No
X libraries or clients.
When I try to install mailman, I get the following error a bunch of times:
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback
I googled; it appears this is a python issue. So I decided to re-install
my python packages. And I got the above error/warning message twice
during the installation.
Up until now, python has been installed only as a dependency (definitely
for postgres - not sure about other packages).
I went poking around and found that /usr/lib/python2.1/site.py is a link
to /etc/python/site.py - and the actual file doesn't exist.
Does anyone know what causes this problem? Have way of avoiding it? Have
a stock copy of site.py they could share? I'm willing to help sort this
out with package maintainers (which of course assumes I'm not the source
of the problem, which probably isn't true - but I do know that my system
is pretty stock).
