True... I should have included this stuff.
the output from "setup.py install" indicates that an egg is constructed
and copied to
At the python prompt, I can "import pysqlite2" with no problems.
However, if I do "from pysqlite2 import test" as suggested after
installation, I get the following traceback...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "pysqlite2/test/__init__.py", line 25, in ?
from pysqlite2.test import dbapi, types, userfunctions, factory,
File "pysqlite2/test/dbapi.py", line 26, in ?
import pysqlite2.dbapi2 as sqlite
File "pysqlite2/dbapi2.py", line 32, in ?
from pysqlite2._sqlite import *
ImportError: No module named _sqlite
If I view my site-packages dir in the Finder, the .egg file appears as
a document, instead of a directory as is usually the case with .eggs.
Perhaps this is an indication that the .egg file is not being built
