[Python-Dev] Build errors under RH9
Thu, 17 Apr 2003 14:39:16 -0700
I just upgraded my development system to RedHat 9, and now I get two
compilation errors on the Python CVS tree. I'll have time to examine
them tonight, but I thought I'd get a notice out now on the chance
that someone else has already resolved them.
1. Compilation of _tkinter comes up with
#error "unsupported Tcl configuration"
The failing test was changed just yesterday, but the previous
version gives the same results:
In revision 1.155:
#if TCL_UTF_MAX != 3 && !(defined(Py_UNICODE_WIDE) && TCL_UTF_MAX==6)
and in revision 1.154:
#if TCL_UTF_MAX != 3
And yet, if I remove the test, I get a (very minimally tested)
working version of Tkinter, so the test should probably be modified
to pass in whatever circumstances RH 9 presents.
2. Compilation of _ssl.c fails to find, through a chain of includes,
file krb5.h. Then things rapidly go to hell.
gets through the compilation, but I don't yet know how to test it.
(How to I get past the
"Use of the `network' resource not enabled"
result of running test_socket_ssl.py?)
