I used a lfs 4.0 to build my unix. But is is very fat (250 M). I can compile
from there and play with "Hello World",
but i dont uderstand how to choose
what i need and what i dont need to compile python (library needed)
and how to choose features that python would be able to do
(for example if i dont inted to use some modules).
My questions are like :
For example, can i build python on a minix system?
Why socket module needs threads to compile ?
I search answers to this kind of questions.
You may right saying that it is possible that there is simple answers
and i may ununderstand some basic features of how system works
if so give me direction to search, because as i told i looked into python
for documentation about this and found nothing.
