Hello, I trying to run some code in Python to send serial data from my n800 (os2008) through usb using the PySerial module. I downloaded Pyserial from sourceforge, unzipped it to /usr/bin and then ran the setup inside /usr/bin/pyserial2.2 using the command
# sudo python install
Unfortunately, I can't seem to get the module to work. Simply trying to import pyserial from the python prompt gives me the following message:
>>> import serial

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>

ImportError: No module named serial
Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? Do I need to install the module in a specific place in the directory? And if so, where?

Can't find the module, maybe it didn't install properly.
