I am getting the following error message while typing ipython.

[rahul@localhost ~]$ ipython
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/ipython", line 26, in ?
    import IPython
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/IPython/__init__.py", line 60, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/IPython/genutils.py", line 38, in ?
    from path import path
ImportError: cannot import name path

I have python 2.4.3 version installed.
I have ipython-0.8.1-py24 installed.
