I apologize if this questions belongs in a different forum, but... I am having a heck of a time getting Python 2.3.5 installed in OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard server.) I need it for a Zope 2.8.6 installation. OS X comes with Python 2.6.1 and I guess my plan is to have 2.3 installed alongside it.
Neither MacPorts (a framework for installing ports of various programs to os x) nor Fink (essentially a port of apt-get / dpkg for os x) worked. MacPorts didn't have a port of python2.3 and Fink wouldn't compile. What I did to get it to the point where it is now: configure with: ./configure --enable-framework MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.5 --with- universal-archs=all --enable-toolbox-glue=false then run: export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 next edit the resulting Makefile and remove the -Wno-long-double flag (it only appears once) finally, running 'sudo make' yields the error: libtool -o Python.framework/Versions/2.3/Python -dynamic -prebind - seg1addr 0x10000000 libpython2.3.a \ -framework System -lcc_dynamic -arch_only ppc - install_name /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/Python - compatibility_version 2.3 -current_version 2.3 libtool: can't locate file for: -lcc_dynamic libtool: file: -lcc_dynamic is not an object file (not allowed in a library) make: *** [Python.framework/Versions/2.3/Python] Error 1 I haven't been able to figure out that last error; commenting out the line it stems from breaks things, deleting just that particular flag (lcc_dynamic) breaks things, and googling didn't turn up any answers. If this is an inappropriate questions for this list, I apologize... where should I post? Thanks!
