Python-3.0b1 build fails on Linux : _gestalt

Discussion in 'Python' started by Helmut Jarausch, Jun 19, 2008.

  1. Hi,

    trying to build Python-3.0b1 on my Gentoo Linux box fails with

    Failed to find the necessary bits to build these modules:
    _gestalt

    Looking at setup.py it seems that module '_gestalt'
    is only needed on Darwin but my build on Linux fails
    nevertheless.

    Thanks for any hints,

    Have you run the configure script?
    This might happen if you have copied the directory from a machine with
    Darwin/Mac OS X

    Why do you think the build fails (i.e. what specific
    error message makes you believe it failed)?

    Your build has not failed. The _gestalt module just didn't build and
    was marked as missing. Note this has been fixed on the trunk.
