I installed django-celery and I tried to start up the worker server but I get an OSError that a function isn't implemented. I'm running CentOS release 5.4 (Final) on a VPS:

    . broker -> amqp://guest@localhost:5672/
    . queues ->
        . celery -> exchange:celery (direct) binding:celery
    . concurrency -> 4
    . loader -> djcelery.loaders.DjangoLoader
    . logfile -> [stderr]@WARNING
    . events -> OFF
    . beat -> OFF

Am I just totally screwed and should use a new kernel that has this implemented or is there an easy way to resolve this?
