Ah, no, I can't import it.

What does this mean? As far as I know, I built Python as instructed.


Python 2.6.1 (r261:67515, Jan 24 2009, 16:08:37)
[GCC 4.0.0 20041026 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 4061)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> from random import Random as _Random
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
   File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/ 
python2.6/random.py", line 871, in <module>
     _inst = Random()
   File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/ 
python2.6/random.py", line 96, in __init__
     self.seed(x)
   File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/ 
python2.6/random.py", line 115, in seed
     super(Random, self).seed(a)
SystemError: error return without exception set
