Message info From:Edward C. Jones Subject:[Python-Dev] Python 3.3 cannot import BeautifulSoup but Python 3.2 can Date:Mon, 07 May 2012 16:42:50 -0400

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 (BeautifulSoup4 for Python3). 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'

What is the problem?
