ViewVC – ImportError: No module named svn

I finally got around to setting up a proper web based viewer for SVN, ViewVC. It really isn’t difficult to setup (if you follow the directions). The main problem (to me) is that it uses Python (which I don’t). When I first tried to get it up and running I got a ‘An Exception Has Occurred’, ‘ImportError: No module named svn’. Now, I don’t know anything about Python error messages which makes this a little more challenging, especially when I had installed ‘python-svn’ (using apt-get). As it turns out there is a ‘python-subversion’ module also. I installed that (via apt-get) and was rocking out to shiny repo browsing.
