Thanks for the responses,
I am trying to build a data structure in Python which exceeds 4GB in size (I have 10GB of RAM) and python exits with the following error when it hits 4GB:
Python(23121) malloc: *** vm_allocate(size=262144) failed (error code=3)
Python(23121) malloc: *** error: can't allocate region
Python(23121) malloc: *** set a breakpoint in szone_error to debug
My hope is that Leopard ships with a 64-bit version of Python, so that I can at least fill up the 10GB of RAM that I have.

You'll need to upgrade to Leopard as a first step. Could you post the detail issues that you're seeing? Do you have code that I can run to reproduce the issue?

I'm running Python under OS X 10.4 on a MacPro, and I'm running up against the limitations of a 32 bit address space (i.e., I can't use more than 4gb of space). I have 64 bit processors in my machine -- will upgrading to Leopard allow Python to use a 64 bit address space?
sorry if this seems like a dumb/naive question, but I can't for the life of me figure this out by googling around.
