I guess the pydb package needs to be findable via your PYTHONPATH. Can you
"import pydb" without error after starting plain IPython?
Python 2.6.2 (r262:71600, Sep 29 2009, 13:22:12)
IPython 0.10 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
In : import pydb
In : pydb?
String Form: <module 'pydb' from '/home/jonvi/usr/lib/python2.6/site-
My PYTHONPATH includes my own (non-root) site-packages/. Then Python is able to
find any package in a subdirectory of site-packages that has an __init__.py in
it (no pun intended 8-).
Which version of Python are you using?
Hope this helps,
