Newbie to... cvs2svn

    I tried subscribing to the cvs2svn mailing list hours ago, but my
subscription hasn't been processed yet
    (!). So I'm hoping someone here at Subversion can help me..

    I've installed subversion and cvs2svn and Berkeley DB 4.3.21 on my
Mac OS X 10.3.6..

    However, when I try running the cvs2svn command, I get:

    ERROR: your installation of Python does not contain a suitable DMB
module. This script cannot continue.
    to solve: see http://python.org/doc/current/lib/module-anydbm.html
for details.

    I already have a CVS web server set up, but was interested in
exploring different version control system
    alternatives. I submitted inquiries to the user dev mailing list
for WebObjects asking about the best
    version control systems, and most WO users enthusiastically
submerged me into the Subversion direction.

    I've gone to the recommended Python website in search of clues to
resolve my cvs2svn issue .. but my sole
    deduction is that the cvs2svn installation requires a db database
interface. (?) The SleepyCat Software :
    Berkeley DB 4.3.21 (already installed) does not suffice? I'm
befuddled and under duress.

    $"locate anydbm" at the prompt proves to me that I indeed have
Python Version 2.3 already installed on
    my Mac, in a Python framework, where "anydbm.py" is situated.

    $python -V at the prompt also confirms that I have Python 2.3
already installed on my Mac.

    ... What could I be missing? My Python version is more recent than
the recommended version for cvs2svn.

    Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated!

    Best regards,
