On my Mandrake-9.1 I have the same non-existing $PYTHONPATH, however
everything works fine (as far as I have tried), so I think this
variable is not really needed. I must admit that I don't know too much
about that. If you want to create a PYTHONPATH I think you will have
to edit /etc/.bashrc , just add something like "export PYTHONPATH
<path>" . To tell the truth I am not quite sure about the details,
there may be also rc-files in the home directories that will overwrite
the global settings from /etc/.bashrc (btw, that is the file's name on
my mandrake box, maybe on RH the filename might differ).
Maybe your problem is not PYTHONPATH at all, but sys.path in python.
I am sorry that I cannot give you better help, I am just a newbie.
