what is the output of 'which python' - this should show what python executable is running:
[jloden at macbook jloden]$ which python
You should then check the output of ls -l agains the value of the above:
[jloden at macbook jloden]$ ls -l /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/bin/python
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 9 Jul 14 01:53 /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/bin/python -> python2.5
That will show what the executable is actually linked to.
Other thoughts would be to check if the /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/Resources/Python.app/Contents/MacOS/Python directory exists, or even if /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/ exists. Perhaps you are trying to execute Python 2.5 but don't actually have it installed?
