Python on Leopard issues

Are others having fundamental issues on OSX 10.5 with python 2.5.1? I was
excited that Python 2.5 was included, but this excitement was very short
lived. Almost nothing works. Upon startup I get this message:

'import site' failed; use -v for traceback

and sure enough, all of the built-in packages are non-existent. I'm not sure
why Apple bothered including an improperly-configured version. Does
anyone have an easy fix for this, or should I go to ActiveState and install a
version that works?

Thanks.

While Apple is far from being perfect, I strongly doubt that they ship a
python as damaged as this - after all, they rely for some system stuff
on the shipped interpreter.

But I bet you didn't install leopard fresh, but upgraded? And did you by
any chance have a python 2.5 installed before?

Anyway, without much more information (where is the python framework
located and so forth) there is no chance of being more helpful.
