Python Dies on "make install"


When I try to build and install python from source It configures and
makes fine but upon 'make install' I always get to this
point:

Listing /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax ...
Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax/__init__.py ...
Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax/_exceptions.py ...
Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax/expatreader.py ...
Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax/handler.py ...
Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax/saxutils.py ...
Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xml/sax/xmlreader.py ...
Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xmllib.py ...
Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/xmlrpclib.py ...
Compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.5/zipfile.py ...
make: *** [libinstall] Error 1

I am currently trying to install 2.5.1. I get the error no matter what the
version is. Does anyone have an idea what may be causing this?

I have gone through the config.log and found no errors concerning
zipfile.py or zipfile or zip. I am thinking the error is the next command
after the zipfile.py installation because I can go into
/usr/local/lib/python2.5 and zipfile.py is installed.

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

I saw this (and reported this issue in SF's tracker) at some time around
2.2/2.3 (just cann't recall). I don't know what causes this problem
exactly, but in my case the installation succeeded if I removed prevoius
python's library directory (/usr/lib/python2.x or
/usr/local/lib/python2.x). The module that stopped installation was
exactly the same.

That did the trick, thanks a million. :)

Hi, I try to "build" and "install" pysqlite? After I type "python setup.py build" I get a lot of error messages? The first error is "src/ connection.h:33:21: error: sqlite3.h: No such file or directory". So, I assume that the absence of the "sqlite3.h" is the origin of the problem. I found on the web, that this file should be either in "/usr/local/ include" or in "/usr/local/lib". I check this directories and I really
