I am writing a Python / C++ embed app and it need to work on 3

I have the PYTHONPATH variable set correctly and have gone back and
downloaded compiled and installed the latest Python 2.5.1  on Solaris
and Linux. adding in the --enable-shared when running the ./
configure ... file

Mac - good to go there was no need do anything except update to 2.5
and add the PYTHONPATH

Solaris 10 -
Linux - Errors occur in the same point at runtime as soon as I try to
do load a module
The load module code is as follows:

PyObject* name = PyString_FromString(moduleName.c_str());
PyObject* mModule = PyImport_Import(name);

if (mModule == 0)
    std::ostringstream oss;
    oss << "Failed to load module <" << moduleName << ">";
    throw PythonException(oss.str());

both errors indicate a problem with

LINUX error stacktrace:

terminate called after throwing an instance of

  what():  N13PythonWrapper15PythonExceptionE
