Re: Can't find Python Library packages in Ubuntu (Debian)

And my third question could be: Do all Python developers that work with Debian
(or derivations) have to compile Python?
I think most people using python as a development tool use the version
available in their distribution. Personally, I mostly use the stock
python of Ubuntu. Although building python itself is not difficult on
the typical linux box, keep in mind that you will almost certainly
need to re-build all the packages you need. Tt is not easy if at all
possible to use extensions from one python interpreter to the other,
in particular for packages which contain C code (things like pygtk,
pyqt come to mind). If you want to use python 2.6, you don't have a
choice, though, since it is not available on Ubuntu yet as you said.
