Freeradius 3.0.11

Ubuntu 15:10

I am a freeradius newbie and i  tring to import an external library into
(PyJWT) for a freeradius authorization, but when i run freeradius -X i get
this error message.

  # Instantiating module "python" from file
mod_init done
rlm_python:mod_load_function: module 'example' is not found
rlm_python:EXCEPT:<type 'exceptions.ImportError'>: No module named jwt
rlm_python:mod_load_function: failed to import python function
/etc/freeradius/mods-enabled/python[10]: Instantiation failed for
module "python"

When i try to import the package from the terminal, everything is ok.

Python 2.7.10 (default, Oct 14 2015, 16:09:02)
[GCC 5.2.1 20151010] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import jwt
>>> encoded = jwt.encode({'some': 'payload'}, 'secret', algorithm='HS256')
>>> jwt.decode(encoded, 'secret', algorithms=['HS256'])
{u'some': u'payload'}

The python file is :

#! /usr/bin/env python
# ...

import radiusd
import jwt

def instantiate(p):
def authorize(p):
  print "*** authorize ***"

but if instead i use :

#! /usr/bin/env python
# ...

import radiusd
#import jwt

def instantiate(p):
def authorize(p):
  print "*** authorize ***"

,freeradius start as espected .

My dockerfile is :

>From ubuntu:15.10

#1;5C radiussrvbase  docker image configuration file
# This docker configuration file use ubuntu 15:10 willy distrib and

WORKDIR /etc/freeradius

Should i declare external python library in freeradius ?

Does i miss something ?
Best regards
