32bit install on 64bit system

Discussion in 'Python' started by Peter Hartmann, Sep 15, 2005.

  1. Hello,
    I could really use some help. I'm trying to install a python program
    on centos4 x86_64. When I run 'python setup.py' it ends up in
    /usr/lib64/python2.3/site-packages/ instead of
    /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages. It's a problem because the program
    I'm trying to install is a dependency for something that is only
    32bit. How can I specify a 32bit install? What I've tried so far:
    When I try 'python setup.py build --build-lib
    /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages' and 'python setup.py install
    --install-lib /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages', it installs the 64bit
    version into the 32bit library. Can anyone help me?

    Thanks,
    Peter

    Try using the 32bit version of python to run setup.py
