You can only import a zexp when all modules and classes referenced in the
"zexp" are available in the importing instance.

What you want to do is not possible.

Your options:

  *  Install "ZmxODBC" in the destination instance (I can run under Linux, too)

  *  Install "ZPsycopgDA" in the source instance, change
     your DA's to use "ZPsycopgDA".

  *  Export and import

  *  maybe, change your DAs back to the previous state.
