configure fails


I have the following error on a OSX.5 OS with CC=icc and using the
python-svn files:

checking size of wchar_t... configure: error: cannot compute sizeof (wchar_t)

I would like to help so we can compile python with icc/OSX.

This looks like a autoconf bug (./configure is normally created by autoconf)
You should check whether this wchar_t configure computation is part of the
standard autoconf macro's or a Python-project specific autoconf macro.

Then fix the problem and supply a patch to the right community.

You may want to subscribe to some autoconf mailing list

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,...
