Pthreads and Extension Modules on Linux

I've been playing with pySonic on unix. PySonic is pyrex wrapper
around the fmod sound library. Fmod is distributed as a shared
library that uses pthreads. I am getting a segfault when a stream
stops playing, at this point I've been able to determine only that the
segfault is from a semaphore message in the pthread library.

Native C++ code solution works fine, so it is some interaction between
python->pySonic shared lib extension->fmod shared lib.

Is anyone aware of any issues or special compiler settings when
building an extension (shared lib) that depends on another shared lib
that uses pthreads?

If a compiled Python extension module B includes code from some other software A which is licensed only under the GPL, do other Python programmes, C, which import module B also need to be licensed under a GPL-compatible license (assuming C is/are to be distributed to third parties)?

Hi, My python module is built using the recommended distutils.core, which uses the -pthread flag. To my amazement this slows down the (-O3) code by a factor of two (!2) My gcc documentation says pthread is a PowerPC flag, but I guess this is wrong. Would my code fail if I drop this flag (Assuming I don't use threads

HI! I'm trying to build Python2.4 on a rather old Debian machine. I only have a shell account there. That's why I'm very limited in my actions. Building _socket fails (see below) although I tried to use configure --disable-ipv6 Any clue?

Hi. I trying to write an extension module to call some C libraries so I can use them in Python. Several of the library functions pass pointers to structures as arguments. I was thinking that I could create a class for each structure, but I'm not sure how to get the data back and forth. The example the "Extending and Embedding the Python Interpreter" manual has examples of passing strings and ints using PyArg_ParseTupleAndKeywords(), but...

I can build python 2.4.2 from source on the embedded linux box when I nfs mount and boot a full debian distribution. The embedded box also has stripped down linux distribution in onboard flash. My goal is to run python from the stripped down linux in onboard flash. I can successfully install python to the onboard flash when booted to the nfs version by using make install with $DESTDIR set to the onboard flash mounted directory

Hi, I'm having some problems with scripts using Python extension modules compiled using mingw. * Some of them work fine if I run them from a command prompt. However, if I double click on them, or run them from within IDLE, they seem to hang. * Other scripts always seem to hang, even if I start them from the command prompt.

Hi, I am trying to get a small group of volunteers together to create Windows binaries for any Python extension developer that needs them, much like the package/extension builders who volunteer their time to create Linux RPMs. The main thing I need are people willing to test the binaries to make sure the extension is stable. This would require installing the binary and probably downloading the source too to get the developer's test

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
