Freezing pycrypto



Hello everyone,

I'm trying to freeze PyCrypto on Linux (using and having
trouble with it, can you help me? PyCrypto is used by paramiko (ssh
client module).

I have added following in the Modules/Setup while building Python (This
has to be done because requires that all compiled extension
modules are compiled statically into Python, it can't import dynamic
libraries into frozen binary):

# ... lots of other modules
Crypto.Cipher.DES3 DES3.c

But this produces:

[[email protected] Python-2.6.2]# make
/bin/sh ./Modules/makesetup -c ./Modules/ \
-s Modules \
Modules/Setup.config \
Modules/Setup.local \
bad word Crypto.Cipher.DES3 in Crypto.Cipher.DES3 DES3.c
make: *** [Makefile] Error 1

If I change that to:


Python compiles, but then I can't import this module and neither can
PyCrypto in a frozen binary:

[[email protected] tmp2]# ./cssh
<frozen>:6: DeprecationWarning: the sha module is deprecated; use the
hashlib module instead
<frozen>:6: DeprecationWarning: the md5 module is deprecated; use
hashlib instead
