I upgraded the xen packages on CentOS 5.1 with the Xen 3.2 packages from 
www.xen.org and seem to hit a few bugs in the python code of the tools. 
For instance, "xm new" creates the following error:

Unexpected error: exceptions.ImportError

Please report to xen-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/xm", line 10, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/xen/xm/main.py", line 2531, in 
    _, rc = _run_cmd(cmd, cmd_name, args)

I see that others had the same problem on other platforms in the past and 
where advised to install "python-xml" or such. However, there is no 
"python-xml" for CentOS and other users on the same platform do not have 
this problem. So, what can I do to fix this?
