Hi Marc-Andre,

yes pyrun is sort of what I had in mind :) That would be like the jre part of the jdk if you're familiar with java.

Ideally users will download the jre and use for running applications (eg. pyrun) but if there's a need for an extension build one need to have a compiler.. now given the plethora of linux distros that's a logistic nightmare.

So my little project does that (following the linux from scratch guidelines): it builds the toolchain (minus libc) the compiler and the python interpreter in one giant (at the moment) tarball. It should be easy to extract from it the runtime part (eg. the pyrun equivalent or the miniconda).

I hope this makes a bit more sense.

Hi Antonio,

could you please spell out your requirements a bit more clearly ?

I have a hard time trying to understand what you're after.
It seems to be about some sort of Python extension building
environment for Linux, but I could be wrong.

You normally don't need to build Python itself just to build an

If you're looking for a standardized Python build for Linux,
PyRun might be what you want: http://pyrun.org/
