This usually means, that PyQt was not built with QScintilla support. As a 
quick test start Python and enter "import qtext". If this shows an exception 
(ImportError), the above statement proofs true, you should rebuild your 
software according to the eric3 README file or report a bug to the slackware

This directory just contains the sip files, not the .so file needed by Python. 
Check your site-packages directory.

That isn't necessary because the Python import mechanism takes care of this.
