I'm running Python 2.0 distutils on IRIX with no problems. Distutils
builds install to the correct directory (the one I installed Python to).
I'm one satisfied customer. Note that I built with --prefix and
--exec-prefix, but that's probably not relevent.
Do a "which python" (or "whence python" for sh/ksh/bash). Are you sure
you're running "python setup.py install" using the python binary you think
Also, run that python and try:
Python 2.0 (#2, Nov 1 2000, 12:06:44) [C] on irix646-n32
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sys
>>> print sys.prefix
>>> print sys.exec_prefix
You probably should read:
and check out the --home and --prefix options. Also read up on config
files. Sounds like they might be useful to you.
