[Twisted-Python] Twisted and Centos5 install problems

Hello everyone,


I'm trying to install Twisted 2.5 on a Centos 5 intel based server that
has Python 2.4 on it, and am having problems. I download the Twisted 2.5
tar file, unpack it, go to the zope.interface directory and perform a
"sudo python setup.py install" command, which succeeds. I then go to the
root directory and do the same thing for Twisted "sudo python setup.py
install" and it looks like it completes successfully. When I go into the
Python interpreter and enter an "import twisted" line, that works fine.
However, if I do this, "from twisted import web" I get an error:


Python 2.4.3 (#1, Mar 14 2007, 19:01:42)

[GCC 4.1.1 20070105 (Red Hat 4.1.1-52)] on linux2

Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

>>> from twisted import web

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?

ImportError: cannot import name web


When I look in /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/twisted I see that it
has a web directory, so I'm not sure what's going on or what the problem
is. Any insights would be most welcome!
