Hello all,

I encounter this issue whereby I am not able to load cPickle module into the python I newly built. There is no issue when I load it right from the folder where the python executable and is built. However, it gives me this error when I load the same module using the installed files (python and all its modules, shared library from default /use/local folder that contains bin, lib, include sub-folders) from "make install" command.

Does anyone know why? Here is the error:-

$ python
Python 2.7.1 (r271:86832, Sep 27 2011, 15:19:26) [C] on hp-ux11

>>> import cPickle
Traceback (most recent call last):
