import can't find xml.sax.saxlib from PyXML

Hi!

I'm using PyXML 0.8.3 on a number of machines. When I now run

import xml.sax.saxlib

python touches both the python/xml/sax and python/site-packages/_xmlplus
modules but not _xmlplus/sax (I see that from strace), and then only
searches for saxlib in python/xml/sax, i.e. in stdlib. I therefore get an
ImportError though saxlib exists in _xmlplus/sax.

I know that it worked before, but I can't tell what changed on the systems
during new installations of new python versions. I tried it with 2.3
(which worked before but somewhat surprisingly doesn't work any more) and
2.4 (where I never managed to make this work).

Does anyone have a hint what I could try?

Thanks,
Stefan

xml/__init__.py from python 2.4 contains:
_MINIMUM_XMLPLU S_VERSION = (0, 8, 4)
so currently Python 2.4 will always fall back to the
builtin xml module.

A quick fix would be to change this back to:
_MINIMUM_XMLPLU S_VERSION = (0, 8, 3)

(Or hope that a PyXML 0.8.4 will be released before
Python 2.4 final)

Bye,
Walter Dörwald

Hi, I have to say I am confused about the documentation on pyxml.sf.net. When I want to use DOM, I effectively am using a class called Sax2? ^^ I also have to catch SAXExceptions, which reside in xml.sax._exceptions. I thought DOM and SAX are two completely different things. Why is PyXML mixing them up like this? Thanks,
