What does that mean? Did you compile it from source or did you install a 
binary package? Please give more information.

1. Today python-ldap-1.10.alpha3 is completely unsupported (I removed it 
from project release area on the Sourceforge site right now).

2. python-ldap-1.10.alpha3 needs the old OpenLDAP 1.x libs (see item 7. on

3. I believe most basic functionality of the current version of python-ldap 
2.0.0pre08 should still work with Python 1.5.x. But I'm not sure.

Ciao, Michael.
