Hi all,

I've been using the `pytone' tool for playing my mp3's for a while. Great
tool. However, after upgrading Python to version 2.4 it stopped working. The
traceback that I get is this:

    Traceback (most recent call last):                                          
      File "src/", line 104, in ?                                      
        songdbid = songdbmanager.addsongdb(songdbname,                          
      File "/home/basvg/bin/PyTone-2.2.1/src/services/", line 147, in  
        import songdbs.local                                                    
      File "/home/basvg/bin/PyTone-2.2.1/src/services/songdbs/", line   
+24, in ?                                                                       
        import bsddb.dbshelve                                                   
      File "/usr/lib/python2.4/bsddb/", line 47, in ?                
        import _bsddb                                                           
    ImportError: No module named _bsddb                                         
The mentioned line in is:
    import _bsddb  

I had a look around through /usr/lib/python2.4 but I couldn't find a _bsddb
indeed. Can anyone help me get my favorite py-tool to work again ;-)?
