    There is a lot of confusion with this one:

Not your fault but the link you sent me is for 64 bit. I found the 32 
bit but it is
called dnspython.  And what I found won't compile.

     Since I finish work at 1pm and it is now 12:54, it is time to go 
home. I will
see what I can come up with tomorrow.

    I believe, and I could be wrong,,, python3-dnspython, python-dnspython
and dnspython could be different names for the same thing.
Tomorrow is another day. Thank you for the help......
