Re: Cannot build _multiprocessing, math,mmap and readline of Python 2.6 on FreeBSD 4.11 w/ gcc 2.95.4

Hi Marc-Andre,

Thanks for the suggestion.
I opened a ticket for this issue: http://bugs.python.org/issue4204

Now I understand the state of the multiprocessing module,
but it's too bad to see math, mmap and readline modules, that worked
fine before,
cannot be built anymore.

As for FreeBSD4, yeah it's really dated and I understand newer FreeBSD should
make my life easier, but I would rather want Python continue to
support old system like this
as long as it's not getting very hard to maintain the clean code base.

Thanks,

>Hi list,

I was trying to build Python 2.6 on FreeBSD 4.11 and found it failed
to build some of the modules.

"""

To find the necessary bits, look in setup.py in detect_modules() for
the module's name.

Because I don't have Berkeley DB, SQLite3 tk, GDBM installed on the
system and running FreeBSD,
there is no wonder it failed to build _bsddb, _sqlite3, _tkinter,
gdbm, linuxaudiodev, spwd and sunaudiodev.

The problem is it failed to build _multiprocessing, math, mmap and readline.

Please post a bug report on python.org about these failures.

The multiprocessing module is still fairly new and obviously needs
more fine tuning for the large set of platforms on which Python
can run. However, please also note that FreeBSD4 is a rather old
version of that OS. FWIW: Python 2.6 compiles just fine on FreeBSD6.

Thanks.

Because FreeBSD is not listed on
http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0011/, I suppose it's still a
supported platform.
Any help, suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
