python2.5 importerror on md5

i compiled and installed the release version of python 2.5 for linux to
a directory accessible to 2 computers, configured with
--prefix=/usr/arch (which is accessible to both machines). the
installation went fine and when i run python on one machine i can do
from hashlib import * without a problem. on the other machine i get the
following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "/usr/arch/lib/python2.5/hashlib.py", line 104, in <module>
md5 = __get_builtin_constructor('md5')
File "/usr/arch/lib/python2.5/hashlib.py", line 31, in
__get_builtin_constructor
import _md5
ImportError: No module named _md5

I have the file md5.py , md5.pyo , and md5.pyc in
/usr/arch/lib/python2.5/ so I don't know why python is having a problem
finding the md5 module...

The sys.path is equal on both machines :
['', '/usr/arch/lib/python25.zip', '/usr/arch/lib/python2.5',
'/usr/arch/lib/python2.5/plat-linux2',
'/usr/arch/lib/python2.5/lib-tk',
'/usr/arch/lib/python2.5/lib-dynload',
'/usr/arch/lib/python2.5/site-packages',
'/usr/arch/lib/python2.5/site-packages/gtk-2.0']

Here is the version info :
Python 2.5 (r25:51908, Oct 23 2006, 13:38:11)
[GCC 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-56)] on linux2

If anyone has encountered similar problems or knows of a way to
fix/suggestions please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

I believe the _md5 module (as opposed to the md5 module) is a compiled
extension. I'm guessing the import succeeds on the machine you used to
build python.

Try

import _md5
print _md5.__file__

and see if you can find out where it's being loaded from. You'll
probably find that you also need to tailor the sysprefix parameter, or
some such.

Steve

You are correct that import md5 works fine on the machine that I
compiled on and only has problems on the other machine. I wasn't able
to import _md5 , even on the machine I compiled on.
Here's what I get on the machine I compiled on:
Python 2.5 (r25:51908, Oct 23 2006, 13:38:11)
[GCC 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-56)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>import md5
import _md5
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named _md5
>>import md5
print md5.__file__
/usr/arch/lib/python2.5/md5.py

sys.prefix is equal on both machines:
>>>import sys
sys.prefix
'/usr/arch'

thanks for any help

Try looking for md5.so - it'll probably be somewhere like
/usr/lib/python2.5/lib-dynload. When I said sys-prefix I meant the
--exec-prefix configuration option, but actually I'm not sure what
determines where shared libraries end up.

At least knowing what you are looking for should help. This may affect
other modules that use extension support.

Steve

i think the problem is different versions of openssl on the two
machines , 0.9.7a and 0.9.8b

I second that this is the likely culprit. I got bit by it while trying to
do cross compile. The module build process assumes a couple of locations that
a particular library might be and takes the first one it finds, regardless of
which one you actually want it to use. I ended up making modifications to
what modules were installed to get md5 to finally import.

My experiences are outlined at this page:

thanks , i actually ended up installing openssl 0.9.8b on the machine
with version 0.9.7a and then reinstalling hashlib (after taking out
part of setup.py that doesn't let you install for python >= 2.5) in the
right place and then it worked
