I installed python 2.5.2 on my SUSE 10.3 system which came with 2.4.4
and when you type 
import readline
it returns No module named readline.

When installing I just unzipped, ./configure, make, sudo make install.

Im brand new to Linux and Python (probably clearly).

I'm not sure what your problem is, but comp.lang.python might be a
better place to ask. It's not clear that this is a bug yet.

You need to install the development package of readline in order to have
the readline module compiled. And this is not a bug.
