I checked out a copy of pypy today and upon trying to run "python
pypy-dist/pypy/bin/py.py" I get this error:

My gcc -v is this:
gcc version 4.2.3 (Ubuntu 4.2.3-2ubuntu7)

And my python version is this:
Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Jul 31 2008, 17:28:52)
[GCC 4.2.3 (Ubuntu 4.2.3-2ubuntu7)] on linux2

Can anyone suggest how I might fix this?


p.s. I know this is a pretty noob question, and I am not sure if a
development mailing list is the right place to post it, but right now it
seems like the only potential place I can find. Am I wrong in this
assumption, and is there another list dedicated to people trying to get into
