Yup, when I try your import I get:

import xml.parsers.expat
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "/usr/local/python21/lib/python2.1/xml/parsers/expat.py", line 4,
in ?
    from pyexpat import *
ImportError: libexpat.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file
or directory

----------
Can someone tell me where I get the missing library(s) from?

Thanks,

David Lees
