Hm, I'm sorry, but I failed to get this going on a SuSE 7.2 with
Python 2.0 system. The error is now more obscure then ever:

hp at iron:~> python -c "from qt import Qt"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: cannot import name Qt

On my SuSE 7.3/Python 2.1, it runs fine. It's not a permission problem.
I straced this, but it doesn't reveal the problem to me, too. Attached.

python -c "import qt" and "from qt import *" works, BTW. What's wrong here?
Before somebody wonders, it's not my idea to import Qt from qt, it's from

Anybody still working on Python 2.0 with current PyQt?

I would love to get this running without updating to 2.1, because
it's a mission critical system with lots of old but important python
code running, and it's 630km away...
