Hello, first I would like to thank for your time, and apologize if my comment may seem stupid.

I have installed Python3.2 from gzipped source tar ball and included few more things we currently need, like numpy and swig. The reason I am writing is that Python3, when called in the shell, gives the following error message, as previously posted:

Python 3.2 (r32:88445, Jun 5 2011, 16:54:06)
[GCC 4.3.2 [gcc-4_3-branch revision 141291]] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/etc/pythonstart", line 7, in <module>
import readline
ImportError: No module named readline

Now, I can understand that the error is not that important, but clearly does not allow interactive command lines, and it is annoying because being able to edit previous commands is very useful. I have downloaded and installed from source code readline6.1, and included path in the cshrc file, recompiled Python again but it does not solve the problem. Is that Python does not see that I have installed readline, which suggests I have done something not correct in setting up the csrhc?

Thank you for any comment.
Andrea
