Hello !

I have a problem.
I create my projects in Windows, and I write a database synchronizing
utility for copy a gdb changes to another gdb. Some of these products
is need to run in linux.

I'm very tired, because I download (apt-get install
python2.3-kinterbasedb) the module, what working good in Windows, but
in linux I get this message when I try to start my script:

bha:/kepes# ./
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 2, in ?
    import kinterbasdb
  File "/home/fixshare/kepes/kinterbasdb/", line 41, in ?
    import _kinterbasdb as _k
ImportError: No module named _kinterbasdb

The test file is:
File:  Col 0              321 bytes                        100%
import kinterbasdb

import sys
# Base datas

print "ok"

In the package dir:

bha:/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/kinterbasdb# ls -l

What I do wrong, or what is it ????
(The Zope with Kinterbasdb is working good in this linux, so no
connection problem...)

thanx for every help !
