View Full Version : Stackless on Dapper

October 3rd, 2006, 06:14 AM
I'm attempting to compile stackless python as pulled via
svn checkout http://svn.python.org/projects/stackless/Python-2.4.3/dev/ but am having a terrible time of it. I've pulled the dependancies for python2.4 and have installed python-dev and issue the standard ./configure && make && sudo checkinstall but am often thrown by this or that. One moment IDLE won't exists stopping my install a file that exists doesn't meaning the build process can't change it's permissions.

So, it seems I don't know what I'm doing.

I'd like to drop stackless in the place of CPython so I can play with what looks to be a really cool toy. However the normal compile, install and pray process seems to not work. Is there anyone using stackless instead of Debian's default CPython? What did you do?

Maybe you should install stackless python somewhere else using the ./configure prefix argument (maybe under your home directory - that way you can't screw up the system CPython installation.
