ImportError with packages

P: n/a
I'm running into import problems trying to create a
package that is similiar in layout to the one in the
docs described here:

So my package layout is as follows:


My file contains 2 lines:

from stats import *
from _research import *

With the directory containing 'xyzzy' on my
PYTHONPATH, the following occurs:

Python 2.4.2 (#2, Nov 3 2005, 11:35:03)
[GCC 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-52)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more
import xyzzy.research Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "xyzzy/research/", line 2, in ?
from _research import *
ImportError: No module named _research

Running python with the -vv switch shows python does
indeed look at but does not load it.

However if I put the directory containing
on my PYTHONPATH the following command is successful:
import _research

Thanks for any help you can offer,
