Yes, I've done this before. You'll have to run Python on FreeBSD but
using the Linux ABI ("Linuxulato r" or "Linux emulation"). It's a bit
of a pain to set up, but it works well after that.

The basic procedure is:

- Load the linux module and install the linux-base and -devtools ports

- Install the Linux Oracle client and get it working enough that you
can run sqlplus

- Compile Python for the Linux ABI (you'll have to install all the
appropriate linux libraries if you need extension modules like
gzip, readline, etc.)

- Compile the Oracle extension modules. I've successfully used
DCOracle2 and cx_Oracle in this scenario.

That should be it, but it's been a while since I had to do it and I
might've missed some steps.

All of the above is okay if you want to run FreeBSD because you like
FreeBSD; it doesn't help if you want to do it because you need to use
some library that's only available for FreeBSD. In that case, you can
probably manage some kind of IPC between Linux-Python-on-FreeBSD and
FreeBSD-Python-on-FreeBSD.

Hi, I have python2.3, installed from port /lang/python long time ago. The current version is 2.4, but I'd rather have two python versions, instead of upgrading. Is there maybe a way to somehow link installed python to /lang/python2.3 port, and then upgrade ports and install /lang/python as a new (2.4) version, without upgrading? Or am I missing something and the things are much easier? I am not a FreeBSD guru and it's my first python...

The multiprocessing module is still fairly new and obviously needs more fine tuning for the large set of platforms on which Python can run. However, please also note that FreeBSD4 is a rather old version of that OS. FWIW: Python 2.6 compiles just fine on FreeBSD6. Thanks.

Hi Marc-Andre, Thanks for the suggestion. I opened a ticket for this issue: http://bugs.python.org/issue4204 Now I understand the state of the multiprocessing module, but it's too bad to see math, mmap and readline modules, that worked fine before, cannot be built anymore.
