realine not found error

I built python 2.4.2 for suse linux 9.3. I configured it to be a separate
instance of python from the version packaged with suse.

Now when I start it I get an error:
python
Python 2.4.2 (#4, Jul 27 2006, 14:34:30)
[GCC 3.3.5 20050117 (prerelease) (SUSE Linux)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright" , "credits" or "license" for more information.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/etc/pythonstart", line 7, in ?
import readline
ImportError: No module named readline

however, I do have readline installed:

rpm -qa | grep readline
readline-5.0-7.2
readline-32bit-9.3-7.1

it id truly does exist:

locate readline
....
/lib/libreadline.so. 5
/lib/libreadline.so. 5.0
/lib64/libreadline.so. 5
/lib64/libreadline.so. 5.0
....

I googled about for this and there were numerous hits on this problem from
others, but I never found a 'solution'.

However, these are not the Python readline module. The Suse package for it is
probably called python-readline or something like that.

okay. Since I grabbed the python tar file from python.org, do I then assume
that readline is not included in the python source distribution? if so,
where would I find it. If not, what different build instructions do I need
to follow to make it build with readline?

Oops. Sorry, I missed that part of what you said. Use

$ ./configure --enable-readline

You may have to install the readline-devel package and the rebuild Python.

I have been ignoring this problem for a few weeks now, but it's becoming a bit annoying not to mention unproductive. Here it goes: I compile my project with no errors. Then after I debug/run it, I get the runtime error noted at the end of this message. If I re-compile (without any changes) and re-run, then my project will run OK. This behavior is very consistent. Another words, the only way I can run an ASP.NET application is if I...
