Installing Python

Required if you wish to use Python bindings and Prewikka (on same machine)

Installing From Source

Download Package

You need at least Python 2.5 (not Python 3.x)


First expand the package

  1. tar -xvf python._version_.tar.bz2

Then, go in the directory you just extracted the files in (within a terminal, and of course, as root)

type the command (==>you should read the README file since it might contain switches that are environment-critical ) :

  1. ./configure

As the lines stops scrolling at incredible speed to let you enter yet another command, type in (it's a bit long this time) :

  1. make

and to install Python in /usr/local enter this :

  1. make install

Python is installed!!!
