We are trying to install Samba 4 on a RHEL4 update 4 machine and are facing
problems. We have downloaded the samba4 tar ball from
After untarring it we have done
cd source4
But at this stage itself we are getting the following error:

  File "/root/Samba/source4/wscript", line 11, in ?
    import wafsamba, Options, samba_dist, Scripting
  File "../buildtools/wafsamba/", line 53

Can anybody kindly help us?
