Puredyne 9.11 by default comes with puredata + externals, not 
pd-extended - so to be sure, you did uninstall puredata and install 
pd-extended instead?

Apart from that, [import] is built into pd-extended's pd as far as I can 
tell, because it modifies some core internals.  So it's impossible for 
[import] to work with vanilla puredata's pd.  Having said that, if you 
configure pd to load libraries at startup (as the live Puredyne distro 
does), you don't need import, and if the "can't create" messages annoy 
you you might create a dummy [import] abstraction that does nothing 
(because it can't do anything useful anyway).

Hopefully with the next+1 release of pd-extended [1], all the externals 
will be modular so it's possible that Puredyne will at that point 
include both puredata and pd-extended.
