Hello group,

I just wanted to switch from Py3.0 to Py3.1. No luck here:

What can I do about that?

Kind regards,

Remove the non-ASCII characters from db.h.

Ehh...

$ find -type f | grep -i db.h
../Modules/unicodename_db.h
../Modules/unicodedata_db.h
../Objects/unicodetype_db.h

There's no db.h file in the Python-3.1rc1 distribution. The ones above
contain thousands of lines (~15k, 5k and 2k) all of which consist of
endless arrays of unsigned characters - I really would not know what to
remove from those.

Kind regards,
Johannes

Correct. I was referring to the db.h from your operating system.
See line 728 of setup.py.
