My recommendation to you is to either do a real installation, where you
untar each package and run it's, or install a CVS copy.  If this
mutated install you are trying is not working, this would definitely be my
next step!

A few things regarding the dbdrivers.  Personally, I would grab psycopg
from It is better tested. We state this in the mailing
lists whenever we get a chance. I use it in production, as do most of the
other developers. You can certainly use pypgsql, but as you seem
frustrated, why go against the flow? 

Have you installed Egenix's mx-base package.  Most of the dbdrivers
(pypgsql included) need mxdatetime internally. This is available from:

Have you looked through the lists for RedHat support? I know we have at
least one RedHat HOWTO. 

Have you tried to manually import your pypgsql package? 
  # python
  >>> from pyPgSQL import PgSQL

Does that fail? If so, PyPgSQL isn't installed properly. If not, I imagine
it has something to do with mxDateTime. 

Incidentally, if you do ever manage to get us a showing at something like
the e-gov conference, let's get you setup before the demo date!
