[Tutor] readline under linux

i downloaded Python 2.3 a while ago, compiled it and installed it with 
no problem.
Still, I tried to use the readline module:
 >>> import readline

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in -toplevel-
    import readline
ImportError: No module named readline

I am running under linux, so i was expecting the module readline to be 
avalaible. I'm I wrong about this avaibility? Or is there any 
dependencies to satisfy that I've missed? Or maybe a special option at 
compile time that I did not set?
