Yes I've a dirctory called dist-packages under python2.6 but that
doesn't contain anything on pylucene [it has lupyne, which i installed
day before yesterday and importing lupyne doesn't give any error msg,
but again it is dependent on pylucene]
# for python the output is :
------------------------------
kk-laptop$ python

for python2.5 this is the output:

and for python2.6 the output is this:

>From all of the above what I can see is we don't have any directory
named dist-packages under python2.5 but we've one under 2.6, then
where did all those pylucene files got installed to after i installed
it using apt-get? Any ideas?

Thanks
