sqlite3 and Python 2.5.1


M

I have sqlite installed, but when I try to import sqlite3 I receive:

Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Nov 3 2007, 02:54:36) [C] on sunos5
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.Traceback (most recent call last):

Yet:

# find /usr/local/python -name "sqlite*" -print
/usr/local/python/lib/python2.5/sqlite3

# /opt/csw/bin/sqlite3
SQLite version 3.2.2
Enter ".help" for instructions
sqlite>

What is missing?

Did you, by chance, happened to compile your Python yourself? From
what I see here:
http://www.megasolutions.net/python/python-unix-install,-sqlite3-78710.aspx
Python's source doesn't include the sqlite3 source, it only contains
pysqlite interface, so when compiling python you need to get sqlite3
too.

You compiled Python yourself. During that, the SQLite3 header files
could not be found, so the sqlite3 module was not compiled/installed.

Thanks, I'll recompile.
