libcurses.so & installing Python 2.4.3

Folks,

I am trying to build the binaries for Python 2.4.3 on a Sun E6900
running SPARC Solaris 9 and using gcc 3.4.2.

When the makefile tries to build the _curses extension it fails with a
symbol referencing error on "mvwgetnstr ", which it appears should exist
in libcurses.so. For some reason it seems this function does not exist
in the version of libcurses.so shipped with Solaris 9.

Will I find it in some other library on Solaris or do I need to
download a different version of libcurses.so?

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks,
Damien.

Neither, nor. You will need to port the curses module to Solaris 9
(if you really need it).

I believe in the subversion trunk of Python (and in Python 2.5),
this problem is fixed.

Martin

Greetings Comrades, Pythonistas! I am looking for guidance on the quick and easiest path to set up a Python wiki. A wiki application idea popped into my head while I was making morning coffee.

One of the aspects of Python I am enamored with is the ease with which I can explore a idea without overplanning and committing to it (during...

I'm writing a GUI application in python, which will need to work on a Windows XP box. Mostly it does, but the feature where results are graphed in real time, which works fine on a debian LINUX box, refuses to run on windows. I'm currently running on cygwin, and changing to a standalone python app would be a pain, but possible. The BltGraph demo which comes with Pmw also refuses to run. The code in that case is:

Hello Yesterday I installed Python 2.4. Since I often work with MySQL, I need the MySQLdb module, wich worked fine under 2.3. Now, it doesn't work under 2.4, it says it needs python 2.3 when I try to install the module. Now I have some (rather nooby) questions: 1. Has anyone tried installing MySQLdb 1.0 under Python 2.4 and has he succeeded? Please let me know how to do it or where I can find more information. 2. Is it possible to use...

I am building a C++ program (main.exe) with VC6 which expects to call the Python DLL.

Hello All, I have been trying to make an https client with python, but it seems that, to do this, one needs to have the socket module compiled with ssl. This is not the default. So I have a couple of questions. 1. Where do I specify to compile socket with ssl? I found no obvious option in configure or setup.py or several other files I checked. 2. Is there a way to do this without re-compiling all of python?

How widely adopted is python 2.5? We are doing some development, and have a choice to make: a) Use all the 2.5 features we want. b) Maintain backwards compatability with 2.4. So I guess the question is, does anyone have a sense of what percent of python users don't have 2.5? Thanks,

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. 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. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
