Fine to hear that, so my tries are making sense ;)

I did this already and I created a script,
that I started with mod_python and I called

oRequest.write( str( imp.find_module("MySQLdb"))) 
  Result:(None,'/opt/<...>/site-packages/MySQLdb' , ('', '',5))

oRequest.write( str( imp.find_module("_mysql")))
  Result:(,'/opt/<...>/sitepackages/_mysql.so', ('.so', 'rb',3))

I think I have another problem. But which one?
Maybe my special configuration does not work,
may you tell me yours, Tom?
