I am running an IDM 3.5 environment and eDirectory 8.8.6 on RHEL 5 (both
32- and 64-bit), and I cannot run several of the RH configuration tools,
e.g., system-config-network or system-config-printer. When I launch
these from a console prompt, I get this error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):

How can I resolve this?
