Hi group!

I am not sure if I am at the right place with my question so I welcome
any link.

I found that one can build yacas as a python module on the
www.koders.com"
The python setup.py build and python setup.py install went well so far.
I modigied the setup.py script a little bit since it was written for
windows.

But when I tried to invoke the yacas.py it failed printing this error
message:
$ python yacas.py

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "yacas.py", line 22, in ?
    import yacasc
  File "/home/biophoton/Downloads/yacas/yacas-1.0.61/src/yacasc.py",
line 36, in ?
    yacas_init = _yacasc.yacas_init
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'yacas_init'

After python setup.py build and python setup.py install I can not find
a file _yacasc. There is a file yacasc.so but this seems not to be the
same. Has anyone an idea how to do this or know another page where I
can find help in order to build the python module. I like the idea to
have some symbolic power in python.


Thank you!
