Python fails compiling in socket extension

Hi group,

I'm trying compiling Python-2.4.1 and it fails builing the _socket
extension with the following message:

*** WARNING: renaming "_socket" since importing it failed:

.... looks like it cannot find inet_addr() - any ideas?

Cheers, Stefan!

Hello all. After a search on Google it would seem that the users of Mingw have not had good results in compiling the python sources natively. See at least: http://uucode.com/texts/python-mingw/python-mingw.html Having said that, kindly allow me to report that Mingw32 can

Hi All, I'd like to use Python-2.3.4 on OSF1 V4.0, but have trouble installing. With a plain "./configure; make" build, I cannot import socket. If I uncomment the socketmodule in Modules/Setup, the build fails. Using gcc 3.4.2. Had no problem on OSF1 V5.1, Linux and Sun. Have not been able to find reference to a similar problem in comp.lang.python.

So, I download the latest "stable" tar for perl (5.8.7) and try to compile it on the Solaris 8 (SPARC) box that I administrate. I try all sorts of different switches, but I can't get it to compile. I need it to be compiled with threads. Anyone have any wisdom on how best to do this? Here's a transcript of my latest attempt. It's long; you might want to skip to the bottom, where I try "make" and the fatal errors start happening.

Hi, I encountered some build issues when compiling Python 2.4.4 on a Solaris 8 box using gcc 3.4.4: 1. Running configure detects that a C++-built main needs C++-linking. Therefore, Python gets linked with g++, creating a dependency on libstdc++. Some research showed up a rather elaborate discussion in the python-dev/c++-sig-archives, ending up in a patch that replaces the --with-cxx option with a --with-cxx-main
