Python 2.2.3 on QNX 6.2.1

I want use Python 2.2.3 for Zope 2.7.0 (only 2.2.2 is on QNX repository).

I try to compile sources with :

CC=qcc CXX=QCC LDFLAGS=-Wl,-E CCSHARED="-shared -fpic" CFLAGSFORSHARED="-shared -fpic" LDSHARED=“qcc -shared” BLDSHARED=“qcc -shared” ./configure --with-threads

but the make fails on the module nis. :cry: why ?

all the sources to the QNX 3rd repository are available on the 3rd party CD. You can download and take a look at the patched python 2.2.2 source and how it compiled.

I think cdm was the one who did the python on the CD so he may be able to help you out.

You can’t build with threads.

Right now our libs have a limitation where fork() fails if there have been any threads created. So python configured with threads on QNX cannot ever start any processes. :slight_smile:
