PyProtocols question

P: n/a
Hi all,

I'm not sure if this is the best forum to place this question, but
haven't found a better one, so here goes.

I have Python 2.3 in my machine (Windows 2000) and downloading
PyProtocols 0.9.2 the installer complains that python 2.2 isn't found
in the registry.

I've also tried to download the source and follow the instructions,
but since there's no compiler the setup complains. Since I cannot find
the latest 0.9.3 version I can't use the --without-speedups to bypass
the compilation phase...

I also have cygwin and could try the rpm's, but I have (yet) very
little experience on it, so I don't wanna go that route.

Anyone got any suggestions?

With my best regards,
G. Rodrigues

If it complains that you don't have Python 2.2, then you should have
installed 2.2 instead of 2.3. Python 2.3 is not Python 2.2.

You say you have cygwin. You can get a version of GCC for cygwin.

I also have cygwin and could try the rpm's, but I have (yet) very

Cygwin has RPM support? Cool. If Pyprotocols as a src RPM and Cygwin
has RPM support, get the source distribution and try to go from there.

This worked for me:

Download the source (0.9.2) from http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist/. Edit
setup.py, so that it says

include_speedups = False

Then, do a setup.py install.

HTH,
