Hello All,

I am very new to Python, trying to install it from source
(ftp://ftp.sunfreeware.com/pub/freeware/SOURCES/python-2.3.3.tar.gz) on
Sun Solaris-9 (SPARC). But getting the below error message during
configure. Also while uncompressing, it is returning the checksum doesnt
match error as well.

Configure Error:

config.status: error: cannot find input file: Modules/Setup.config.in

tar: directory checksum error

Can someone help me understand why it is returning error, Also I do not
'root' privileges on the server that i am trying install. So I will be
installing my home directory.

Thank You,
Madhu
