to all who are porting 2.1.1 to a UNIX like system.
I'm porting 2.1.1 to QNX6 and got the situation that the module 'os' could not
be be found with 'import os'
After some hacking with DDD .. I found out that the pathes used by the search
algorithm of import.c has nothing to do with the directory structure of the UNIX
distribution of Python 2.1.1 =:-/
I have installed Python in the root directory and set PYTHONHOME/PYTHONPATH to
/Python-2.1.1 -> the path to he library modules is then
The search algorithm of import.c is using the following search path sequence:
"os.so" -> I don't know why it should make sense to open
a shared object with fopen ??
"/Python-2.1.1/os.so" ... os.pyc
"/Python-2.1.1/lib/python2.1/os.so" ... os.pyc
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ who got the idea that this is part of the
UNIX distribution ??
Is the version 2.1.1 released or is it escaped :)
