Summary: Compiling python on hpux 11.00 with threads (PR#360)
Details: Jitterbug-Id: 360
Date: Fri, 16 Jun 2000 08:47:06 -0400 (EDT)
OS: HP-UX 11.00
There are two missing details in the configure process to make this work
out of the box.
First: The function
isn't found in library libpthread.a but in libcma.a, because
pthread_create is just a macro in sys/pthread.h pointing to
After patching ./configure directly and running
(now detecting the correct library /usr/lib/libpthread.a) I also
added -lcl to Modules/Makefile at
LIBS= -lnet -lnsl -ldld -lpthread -lcl
otherwise importing of modules with threads didn't work
(in this case oci_.sl from DCOracle).
I'm not sure about the correct syntax or wether it's the correct
place and method, but I would suggest a solution like the following
LIBS="$LIBS -lpthread -lcl"
LIBOBJS="$LIBOBJS thread.o"], [
AC_CHECK_LIB(pthread, __pthread_create_system, [AC_DEFINE(WITH_THREAD)
I hope this helps to make installation process smoother.
Fell free to contact me, if there are further questions.
