sequel to the topic "install patch on windows".....

I am currently running Python2.3 with Enthought on a windows PC. I have
been running into a memory problem (see
http://evanjones.ca/python-memory-part3.html), and would like to
install a patch. I have read a lot about it online, but can't seem to
find out how to do so on windows.

I have a 'patch' program that works, but it only patches the source
file 'obmalloc.c', which does not exist in the final Python
installation. Is it possible to install a patch without recompiling all
of python? Could someone direct me to some documentation that might
help?

I wouldn't mind waiting for the 2.5 release (which has the patch built
in), but then I'm afraid I would also have to wait for an ungrade of
Enthought.

any advice?

thanks,

djoefish

In order to patch a part of core Python, you need to recompile I'm
afraid. Better to use Python 2.5.

Enthought.
I think that the only thing the Enthought distribution offers, is that
it comes with lots of extension modules.

Just install the normal Python distribution and all the modules you
actually need. I don't think you lose anything doing this.

I have installed 2.5, but cannot install numpy or scipy since their
latest Win32 versions require 2.4 or 2.3. Any advice on installing
packages that are designed for the eariler version?
