"set" is a built-in set data type in Python 2.4 and later. Twisted has a compatibility module for older versions of Python. On my system, the twisted/python/compat.py file (from which the code tries to import "set") has try: set = set except NameError: from sets import Set as set which simply tests to see if "set" is defined, otherwise it imports it From the sets module, which defines a Set class in old Python versions. Which Python version are you using (python -V)? Which distribution is this? Twisted is a standard component which is surely packaged for the distribution -- there should be no need to installing it yourself. -- Martin Geisler
