AfterGlow app not working

I'm having trouble getting the AfterGlow app working on Centos 5.6 and Splunk 4.3.2, build 123586.

I followed the instructions here to setup the yum repository for GraphViz:

http://www.graphviz.org/Download_linux_rhel.php

I ran:

yum install webdot gts gtkglext gtkglarea2 graphviz

I downloaded AfterGlow 1.6.2 and extracted it to /opt/afterglow

I modified the following lines on the AfterGlow.py script:

AFTERGLOWLOCATION = "/opt/afterglow/src/perl/graph/"
AFTERGLOWPARAMETERS = "-c /opt/afterglow/src/perl/graph/sample.properties -e 1.2"
(tried both of these)
TARGETDIR = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(file)),"..","..","static")
TARGETDIR = "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/afterglow/appserver/static/"

Both TARGETDIR settings yield the same result.

Running a search and piping it to | fields A B C gives me:

[AfterGlow module] [Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'/opt/splunk/etc/apps/afterglow/appserver/static/afterglow1341548834.142.map'

I don't know python well enough to figure out how that "u" is being inserted in front of the file path.

Has anyone got this working?

This is what worked for me:

Download AfterGlow:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/afterglow/files/AfterGlow%201.x/1.6.2/

Download perl-text-csv:
http://pkgs.repoforge.org/perl-Text-CSV/

Graphviz Installation:
Create a yum repository for it following the instructions at the top of the download URL
yum install webdot gts gtkglext gtkglarea2 graphviz
rpm -ivh perl-Text-CSV-0.01-1.2.el5.rf.noarch.rpm

Edit the following to reflect the afterglow paths you use:

/opt/splunk/etc/apps/afterglow/appserver/modules/AfterGlow/AfterGlow.py

AFTERGLOWLOCATION = "/opt/afterglow/src/perl/graph/"

AFTERGLOWPARAMETERS = "-c /opt/afterglow/src/perl/graph/sample.properties -e 1.2"

TARGETDIR = "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/afterglow/appserver/static/"
