building Tkinter on AIX

Hi All,

I have some problems building the python modules, most notably Tkinter, on
AIX 5.1. Can anyone be of any assistance?


This is what the compiler spits out:

Hello, I was able to unearth some ancient documentation suggesting Modules/Setup has to be edited by hand (after ./configure) to compile tkinter. The short info at http://www.python.org/topics/tkinter/download.html doesn't mention this, instead it is a bit contradictory first stating that tk is part of python and then that Unix users must download and build Tcl and Tk (which I did for the latest versions 8.4.4). In all cases, I wasn't...

I have tried using the source rpm and the tarball to build python on RH9. In both cases I get a build failure on tkinter because I don't have X installed. Since I only care about the core python and the devel rpms, is there any way to only have those two rpms built from the source rpm? Thanks Sandeep

It doesn't currently do this. although, if the window shrinks smaller than the...

I've been trying to build a fairly simple message box in tkinter, that when a button is pushed, will pop up a box, that has a line of text, an entry widget, and a button, that when the button is pushed, will return the value in the line of text. However, while I can read the value of the button, I want to wait till the button is pushed to return the value. Any ideas of how I could do this?

Hello: Below I have included a stripped down version of the GUI I am working on. It contains 2 dialog boxes - one main and one settings. It has the following problems, probably all related, that I am hoping someone knows what I am doing wrong: 1) Pressing the Settings.. Button multiple times, brings up many instances of the Settings Panel. I just want it to bring up one. Is there an easy way to do that?

Hey, I'm pretty new to programming. Been trying to learn using Python. The code I'm struggling with is for my GUI. I'm am having trouble getting this to display the way I want with the grid manager.

Hi, I've already sent this to the Komodo mailing list (which seemed to me the more appropriate place) but unfortunately I got no response. I'd like to build a Python GUI app. Neither Tkinter nor Wxpython nor PyQT are actually what I want (because the lack of GUI builders and they don't really look good on Windows and Linux). Komodo itself is an excellent example of a - at least Python driven -
