[Zope-dev] Upgrading to python 2.1.2 and Zope 2.5b4

2002-01-17 Thread Tony McDonald

Hi all,
I want to upgrade to python 2.1.2 (from an existing 2.1 installation) and at
the same time upgrade to 2.5b4 in the hopes that this combination will fix
the threading problem under Solaris.

Q1: Is this the right combination to use, I've read that I should use 2.1.2
and 2.4.4 (possible numbering scheme). If so, I can wait (but we are getting
core dumps regularly now)

Q2: (and apologies, as this is a more python-orientated question) Can I just
do a 'make install' of python 2.1.2 and be sure that it's not going to make
my MySQL and other modules in site-packages unusable? (sorry if this is a
daft question - I have a *lot* of zope sites using python 2.1 at the moment)

Many thanks
Tone

Hi Tony,

The combination of Zope 2.4.4 and Python 2.1.2 will be the right 
combination.  If you can't wait for Zope 2.4, you can use Zope 2.5 
(which I believe already has the requisite fixes), although of course 
it's still in beta.

I think you'll need to recompile your extensions -- I'm not sure that 
it's strictly necessary but it is at least the safest thing to do.  This 
presumes at least running python wo_pcgi.py against your software home 
and re-Make-ing your 3rd part extenions with the new Python.h, etc.
