First make sure that pyton-devel is installed on your system.
It's available at www.python.org I think.
Untar PoPy-1.1.tar.gz and ZPoPyDA-0.3.tar.gz .
First you have to build PoPy.
On my system I had to modify the lib and include path in Setup and
PoPy PoPymodule.c -I/usr/local/pgsql/include -L/usr/local/pgsql/lib -lpr
Go on with:
make -f Makefile.pre.in boot
You should now have the shared library PoPymodule.so .
Copy this file to python1.5/site-packages on your system.
Now you have to install zope-popyda-0.3
"make install" will place the Zope product to
Just move it to the Product folder of your Zope installation.
Restart Zope and it should work ;-)
Take a look at the README. It describes the format of the connection
It's different from that of PyGreSQLDA!
Also make sure that you hav set proper permissions on
BTW after i recognized some problems using PoPy I switched back to
1. When I try to connect to postgres 6.4 using PoPy the connect fails
postgres.log: ERROR: parser: parse error at or near "transaction"
2. Whether Auto-commit mode is on or off on ZPoPyDA the new postgres
"select * from foo limit 20 offset 10" returns all records of foo and
not only 20 !
With PyGreSQLDA it works :-)
