    I originally tried compiling python 2.3b1 on a Solaris 9 system with
    --enable-shared and ran into some problems that someone helped me
    resolve and said fixes were in CVS. I thien tried python 2.3b2 and it
    compiled fine so the fixes made it in; however, it reports:

    ../python
    Python 2.3b1 (#1, Jun 14 2003, 15:08:24)
    [GCC 3.2.3] on sunos5
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    >>>



    I thought maybe this was just someone forgetting to update the startup
    message for the new beta, but I've seen other messages that show
    Python 2.3b2.

    Any ideas on what happened?

    Hmm, mine doesn't (built from scratch on Linux):

    max@oxygen:~% python2.3
    Python 2.3b2 (#1, Jun 29 2003, 20:30:58)
    [GCC egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)] on linux2
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

    Are you sure you're running the version you think you are?

    Still get 2.3b1.

    Here's the file size of the Python-2.3b2.tgz file: 8421285

    Is that correct?

    You can look on the python.org Web site and check this for yourself.

    If you didn't uninstall the beta 1 and are installing the beta 2 into a
    _different prefix_, it's almost certainly the case that what you're
    seeing is simply contamination. Delete the old beta before installing
    the new one.
