Is it in the site-packages directory for the particular version of
python you're using?

For example, my system has both python2.3 and python2.5 installed, and
they both have their own site-packages directories:


A package installed for only one version of python won't be importable
if you're running a different python version.

(If you don't know which version you're running, the version number
should be displayed when you start up a python shell, like this:

  command prompt> python
  Python 2.3.4 (#1, Apr 15 2011, 17:38:51)
  [GCC 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-11)] on linux2
  Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
