pythonic pypal bug

Hello there

I have successfully compiled the python interface for palabos.v1.0r1. It works perfectly for the example at However, when I try to run the examples from $PALABAS_ROOT/pythonic/examples/ , I get an error message like:
~/palabos-v1.0r1/pythonic/examples$ ./
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “./”, line 13, in
from pypal import *
File “…/src/pypal/”, line 1, in

_core = swig_import_helper()
File “…/src/pypal/plb/”, line 22, in swig_import_helper
_mod = imp.load_module(’_core’, fp, pathname, description)
ImportError: dynamic module does not define init function (init_core)

Any ideas how to get around this?

I’m running Ubuntu V12.10 thorough an Oracle Virtual Machine (v4.2.16) on my Windows 7 quad core PC. I have installed all the necessary packages noted at
