Warning, a python neophyte here so I am more than likely missing something. 

I'm trying to use 2.4.2 (and also tried 2.4.1 with same error, 2.4.0 with a different error...) under Ubuntu with the intention of trying out ReviewBoard. 

launching python and attempting to import psycopg2 yields: 
>>> import psycopg2 
Traceback (most recent call last): 
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> 
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/ 
dist-packages/psycopg2/__init_", line 67, in <module> 
from psycopg2._psycopg import BINARY, NUMBER, STRING, DATETIME, ROWID 
ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist- packages/psycopg2/ undefined symbol: lo_truncate 

My setup.cfg:

Building (python install) this yields no warnings or errors. 

The easy_install psycopg2 has the same error. If I attempt to install with static libraries, I can't even build it: 
running build_ext

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'append' 

In case it matters: 
# cat /proc/version 
Linux version 2.6.32-32-generic-pae (buildd(at)roseapple) (gcc version 4.4.3 (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5) ) #62-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 20 22:10:33 UTC 2011 
# python --version 
Python 2.6.5 
# python-config --libs 
-lpthread -ldl -lutil -lm -lpython2.6 

Any ideas? 

Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide!
