This really isn't the right mailing list to ask this kind of question (I know you got help last time with your Debian-specific problem, but that was because people got overly excited =). Python-dev is meant for discussing the development *of* Python, not using it or developing *with* it.

I would try your question on comp.lang.python/python-list.

I use up-to-date Debian testing (wheezy), amd64 architecture.  I compiled

python3-bs4 (BeautifulSoup).  I also downloaded a "clone" developmental
copy of 3.3.

Python3.3a3 cannot find module bs4.  Neither can the "clone".  Python3.2 can find
the module.  Here is a session with the "clone":

What is the problem?
