No _sqlite3.so in /usr/lib/python2.5/lib-dynload


Python-2.5 has built in support for SQLite3, so pysqlite2 is no longer required. However, my application will not load because when /usr/lib/python2.5/sqlite3/dbapi2.py calls "from _sqlite3 import *", there is no _sqlite3.so found. Sure enough, it's not present in /usr/lib/python2.5/lib-dynload, where others have it installed.

Do I need to re-install the python2.5 package, or are others missing this library, too?

TIA,

Rich

I just re-installed python2.5.1. There is no _sqlite3.so present.

What's the best way to correct this? I need to run my application while on a business trip starting tomorrow.

I don't know why exactly, but PV hasn't included sqlite3 in Slackware yet, so Python's built-in sqlite3 module isn't working. Personally I consider this a broken Python distribution, as the sqlite3 module should be available being standard in Python 2.5. I think at this moment you need to install sqlite3 and recompile Python to have it available.

I just came back to post that I found the problem and fixed it. You're absolutely correct: the default package is broken because it excludes the SQLite3 support distributed with the 2.5.1 source code.

By building from source and moving the library to /usr/lib/python2.5/lib-dynload/ I resolved the issue. There's still a wxPython issue with the very latest version that's yet to be resolved, but that's for the wxPython mail list.

Thanks,

Rich
