    freevo to start help please


    hi all i have installed freevo on fedora 5
    but when i try to start the app it tell me this error:

    Error: local_conf.py not found

    Freevo is not completely configured to start
    The configuration is based on three files. This may sound oversized, but this
    way it's easier to configure.

    First Freevo loads a file called 'freevo.conf'. This file will be generated by
    calling 'freevo setup'. Use 'freevo setup --help' to get information
    about the parameter. Based on the informations in that file, Freevo will guess
    some settings for your system. This takes place in a file called
    'freevo_config.py'. Since this file may change from time to time, you should
    not edit this file. After freevo_config.py is loaded, Freevo will look for a file
    called 'local_conf.py'. You can overwrite the variables from 'freevo_config.py'
    in here. There is an example for 'local_conf.py' called 'local_conf.py.example'
    in the Freevo distribution.

    If you need more help, use the internal webserver to get more informations
    how to setup Freevo. To do this, you need to set
    WWW_USERS = { 'username' : 'password' }
    in your local_conf.py and then you can access the doc at
    http://localhost:8080/help/

    The location of freevo_config.py is /usr/share/freevo/freevo_config.py
    Freevo searches for freevo.conf and local_conf.py in the following locations:
    .
    /root/.freevo
    /etc/freevo
    /usr/local/etc/freevo


    Since it's highly unlikly you want to start Freevo without further
    configuration, Freevo will exit now.


    i am confused at what needs to be done here.
    thanks
