Go back to the web site and look at the download page.

Usually, the download page will list various versions
to use with various Python versions. If it lists a
2.4 version, a 2.5 version, but no 2.6 version, most likely
the authors haven't yet made a 2.6 version so you're SOL.

Even that isn't guaranteed to always work. For instance,
the authors of the smpy module didn't think they needed
a seperate 2.6 version (and didn't make any effort to
actually try it 2.6). Turned out to be dead wrong on that
and had to scramble to release a fix.
