I am very new to this usenet forum, and I am brand new to Python3...
so be gentle <please>
The source tarball for Python3 compiled and installed (local install
for first experiments $HOME/local/) and runs very well in my terminal.
I am not able to run IDLE because the compile build process could
not build the _tkinter module, I think because TclTk is not installed on
this system in the standard places... Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty. I have TclTk
installed version 8.5x and tclsh and wish work fine... also IDLE on
python 2.62 works fine too.
I am noticing that setup.py has the path to the TclTk libs hardcoded
for /usr/X11R6/... and my TclTk is not there... so I'm thinking that I
need to direct the setup.py path to the right place and thinngs should
work... but, I'm at a bit of a loss to know exactly what its looking
for... libs, or libs and devel headers? or other?
Help/Hints would be appreciated from the initiated... humbly greatful...
