I'm afraid that unless you can identify where the problem lies, we 
probably won't be able to help you.

I've used sympy, but I haven't used r3 or redis. Can you confirm:

- is redis is working outside of Python?

- can you get sympy working without r3?

- have you installed r3 successfully? how do you know?

- can you demonstrate the SIMPLEST possible piece of 
  code that shows the failure?
