The relevant item on sys.path is:

That ensures that Python finds your MMTK installation. MMTK then adds
a new item to sys.path, which is the directory which contains its
__init__.py with the value of sys.platform appended. That should yield


for you, but apparently it doesn't. This happend in MMTK.__init__.

Do you perhaps have multiple MMTK installations on your system?  In
that case, your Python could pick up an installation without the
binary modules.

One way to find out is:

> import MMTK
> print MMTK.__file__

That should print


Any other value is suspect.
