Python 3.3 cannot find BeautifulSoup but Python 3.2 can
I use up-to-date Debian testing (wheezy), amd64 architecture. I compiled
and installed Python 3.3.0 alpha 3 using "altinstall". Debian wheezy comes
with python3.2 (and 2.6 and 2.7). I installed the Debian package
python3-bs4 (BeautifulSoup). I also downloaded a "clone" developmental
copy of 3.3.

Python3.3a3 cannot find module bs4. Neither can the "clone". Python3.2
can find
the module. Here is a session with the "clone":

> ./python
Python 3.3.0a3+ (default:10ccbb90a8e9, May 6 2012, 19:11:02)
[GCC 4.6.3] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import bs4
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 974, in _find_and_load
ImportError: No module named 'bs4'
[71413 refs]
>>>

What is the problem?

This really isn't the right mailing list to ask this kind of question (I
know you got help last time with your Debian-specific problem, but that was
because people got overly excited =). Python-dev is meant for discussing
the development *of* Python, not using it or developing *with* it.

I would try your question on comp.lang.python/python-list.

There are lots of good resources for Debian-specific Python issues (mailing
lists, IRC, etc.). Start here:

http://wiki.debian.org/Python
