Setup/install issues including site.py

P: n/a
Hello there

Im trying to port Python 2.4.3 to the Etrax platform, things have been
working but im having some issues I dont get.

if I issue #python I get ...

Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]

(i do get the interpreter prompt)

so I set PYTHONHOME
#export PYTHONHOME=/mnt/flash/Python/lib:/mnt/flash/Python/bin

run python again

#python

and then get this error message:

'import site' failed; use -v for traceback

So you see I get one error or the other.

btw site.py is located in the PATH of the above export and also in the
location of the python binary.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated
