Try installing another Python-package manually, look at I`ve
had similar problems with Suse and the included Python-packages too. It`s
probably missing zlib libraries etc. also.

Worst case scenario: build Python from source. Scary hu? Switch to a
debian-based distribution of Linux and those problems are gone.

PS! By the way, this might not be directly python-related, more
Linux-specific, and you might get alot of flak for asking questions like this
ie. not directly on topic, or <bash-perl>perhaps that only applies to
comp.lang.perl , where the really angry people live </bash-perl>.
