RHEL comes with Python2.3 installed. A program I need to install
So I got Python2.4 from source and compiled it up. I configured it
with --prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/usr and --enable-unicode=ucs4 . I
then make'd it and then make altinstall so that it didn't overwrite
the /usr/bin/Python link to /usr/bin/Python2.3 .
Well, for some reason, the arch dependent files did NOT get placed
properly in /usr/lib64/Python2.4, they instead went to
Also, when I tried to load pysqlite:
>>> from pysqlite2 import test
I get the following traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "setup.py", line 24, in ?
import glob, os, re, sys
File "/usr/lib64/python2.3/glob.py", line 4, in ?
File "/usr/lib64/python2.3/fnmatch.py", line 13, in ?
File "/usr/lib64/python2.3/re.py", line 5, in ?
from sre import *
File "/usr/lib64/python2.3/sre.py", line 97, in ?
File "/usr/lib64/python2.3/sre_compile.py", line 17, in ?
assert _sre.MAGIC == MAGIC, "SRE module mismatch"
AssertionError: SRE module mismatch
This basically means to me that Python2.4 is loading gloab.py from
/usr/lib64/Python2.3 insead of /usr/lib/Python2.4 (even thought I
wanted to install the related files in /usr/lib64/Python2.4)
Can someome please help!
