How to compile python2.5 on SCO_SV

  • You must have PTH installed, and maybe other libs.
  • This was tested on SCO_SV os507 3.2 5.0.7 i386
If you have UDK, run:

$ CFLAGS='-I/usr/local/include -belf' LDFLAGS='-L/usr/local/lib'      \
  ./configure --with-threads --with-pth --disable-shared --disable-ipv6
  • Add /usr/local/include to BASECFLAGS in Makefile (autocrap sucks).
  • Patch Modules/ctypes/_ctypes_test.c by putting an #ifdef HAVE_LONG_LONG around functions that use PY_LONG_LONG (hints: lines 384 and 318).
  • Patch Objects/longobject.c and on line 817 put the IS_LITTLE_ENDIAN macro before the #ifdef HAVE_LONG_LONG block, and put _PyLong_FromSsize_t and _PyLong_FromSize_t after the HAVE_LONG_LONG block.
If you have GCC, run:

$ CFLAGS='-I/usr/local/include' LDFLAGS='-L/usr/local/lib'            \
  ./configure --with-threads --with-pth --disable-shared --disable-ipv6
Either with UDK or GCC:
  • Edit pyconfig.h and comment out the socklen_t define
  • Edit Modules/socketmodule.c and on line 226 add || defined(SCO5) in order to define INET_ADDRSTRLEN.
  • Run make (or gmake if you wish)

You will be left without _curses.so, _curses_panel.so, _locale.so and readline.so if using GCC and also pyexpat, elementtree and sha512 if using UDK.
