I hope you can forgive the newbie-ness of all this, but I have decided to
run with Python as my learn first programming language now that I have been
told to run a redhat apache server.
Lemme give you the rundown:
Installed an out of the box RedHat 7.1 server (WITHOUT a GUI) which comes
with Python 1.5.2. A little outdated I thought, so I determined that now
the rest of the box is stable I will upgrade. I go get the Python-
2.1.1.tgz file, run
tar xfvz Python-2.1.1.tgz
And it all uncompressed great.
I CD to the new Python-2.1.1 directory.
I try to run
python setup.py install
as per the instructions on http://python.org/doc/2.1.1/inst/standard-
install.html and it spits back the following error:
File "setup.py", line 57
extlist = [ext for ext in extlist if ext.name == modname]
Same if I try to run python setup.py build
And I can't find what to do next anywhere.
Any advice would be *greatly* appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
