I got the latest code from hg tree, and installed that.  But running
"virt-install" (without option) returns the error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/virt-install", line 36, in <module>
    from virtinst.VirtualCharDevice import VirtualCharDevice
ImportError: No module named VirtualCharDevice



How to fix this problem?
