View Full Version : REQUEST: wxPython in Hoary

January 26th, 2005, 11:20 PM
Hey, I was just told that the wxPython in Hoary currently uses GTK2, while the wxPython we are left with in Warty still uses the born-to-die GTK1. The package is known as libwxgtk2.4-python in Warty. I don't know what version Hoary has, but I'm guessing 2.5? ;)

Well, it's still version 2.4, just a new version...

Will this backport break any Python progs written for this older version of wxPython?

January 26th, 2005, 11:32 PM
From what I remember, no. The 2.x wxPython's are all backwards-compatible and so on, and if I'm wrong, I'll be the one to test it and find out. ;)

Ok, then I'll build these when I get a chance... or at least see if Python dependencies would let me.

/me can't wait. :D

Finally get to do some serious work with wxPython and wxGlade. Haven't done any since my Windows days because of my fear of GTK1 on a modern Gnome desktop. :)

It has a dependency on python 2.4, but I forced a build against python 2.3 (Warty's)...

Cross our fingers.... (OOo didn't like it when I did this!)

Has it been put up on the repos. yet?

January 27th, 2005, 12:24 AM
It's still building.... Rebuilding 20MB of source isn't exactly that quick.

BTW, I'm worried about the rest of wxwindows -- which has to be backported along with wxPython.....

Even if wxpython has backwards compatibility, I'm not sure if the rest of wxwindows can be backwards compatible..... Please test that too.

Ok, from the developers of it that I've talked to, they said everything SHOULD be fine but should be tested first as well.

Your call.

It really wants Python 2.4.....

No way.
