Thread: Python 2.7.10 Installation Error

  1. #1

    Default Python 2.7.10 Installation Error

    I want to install 2.7.10 on OpenSUSE 13.2, but I'm stuck on an error which I did not see in the 2.7.8 install. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This is how I installed python:
    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    make
    su root
    make install

    During make, I got this:
    Code:
    Python-2.7.10/Modules/_curses_panel.c:17:19: fatal error: panel.h: No such file or directory
     #include <panel.h>
                       ^
    compilation terminated.
    
    Python build finished, but the necessary bits to build these modules were not found:
    bsddb185           dl                 imageop         
    sunaudiodev                                           
    To find the necessary bits, look in setup.py in detect_modules() for the module's name.
    
    
    Failed to build these modules:
    _curses_panel                                         
    
    running build_scripts
    But this thread tells me that I do not need it (go to 2nd last comment). http://codeverge.com/opensuse.org.he...e-11.4/1907211
    So I carried on.

    Running python afterwards gives me:
    Code:
    Python 2.7.10 (default, Oct 18 2015, 13:12:33) 
    [GCC 4.8.3 20140627 [gcc-4_8-branch revision 212064]] on linux2
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/etc/pythonstart", line 7, in <module>
        import readline
    ImportError: No module named readline
    >>>
    Trying to run an application that used to work now gives
    Code:
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 427, in <module>
        import select
    ImportError: No module named select
    I checked and /usr/lib/python2.7 does not have select.py.

    Do you know how this is possible? I've installed readline-devel already.

    I realize belatedly that I should've run "make altinstall" just to be safe. But anyhow that's my problem.

    Also, how do I revert back to 2.7.8 as the primary python version?

    Thanks.

    Solution 1: do not install python-2.7.10-56.1.x86_64
    Solution 2: break python-2.7.10-56.1.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies

    I installed anyways, but running python again I see the same problems, and the timestamp on the python interpreter 13:12:33 stayed the same.

    I noticed that the rpm installed in /usr/local instead, so I exported PYTHONPATH to point to /usr/local/lib/python2.7. Now however the same readline and select errors reappeared.

    You have enabled the repo and than installed python from this repo?

    What do you mean by enabling the repo?

    I ran "sudo zypper in <rpm file I downloaded from the unofficial packages for one of the 2.7.10 rpms>".

    With YaST you install (from a repo). That installation includes, but is not restricted to, downloading. Thus please, did you install it with YaST or not? And when yes, di you get any warnings/errors?

    First,
    You have to add the openSUSE Python repo which likely contains the dependency packages you're looking for (The following command installs Python 2 on a 13.2, there are other repos)
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/python/openSUSE_13.2/ Python_openSUSE_13.2
    Note that installing in this way by default modifies your Python system-wide.
    If you want to install multiple Python versions and set them to apply to individual application trees or your entire system, you should install and manage your Python using virtualenv.

    Now I just tried what tsu2 is suggesting, but after the install I don't see any python2.7 related files or directories installed:
    sudo zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.2/ Python_openSUSE_13.2
    root's password:
    Adding repository 'Python_openSUSE_13.2' .................................................................................................................................[done]
    Repository 'Python_openSUSE_13.2' successfully added
    Enabled : Yes
    Autorefresh : Yes
    GPG Check : Yes
    URI : http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.2/

    then,

    sudo zypper in python
    Empty destination in URI: hd:///?device=/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-1KingstonDataTraveler_2.0-part1

    Abort, retry, ignore? [a/r/i/? shows all options] (a): i
    Do you want to disable the repository openSUSE-13.2-0 permanently? [yes/no] (no): yes

    No update candidate for 'python-2.7.8-1.1.x86_64'. The highest available version is already installed.

    Nothing to do.


    I did receive this warning message:
    Empty destination in URI: hd:///?device=/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-1KingstonDataTraveler_2.0-part1



    Right now I just want to restore any python to my computer (although best if it's 2.7.10 but not no big deal).

    Ahh, I stumbled upon python-base after messing around with this command:

    ~/Downloads> zypper source-install libpython2_7-1_0
    Reading installed packages...
    Loading repository data...
    Package 'libpython2_7-1_0' has source package 'python-base'.
    Source package 'python-base' for package 'libpython2_7-1_0' not found.
    Resolving package dependencies...


    After installing python-base and then python using zypper it worked!

    Thanks everyone for your input. +1 for your help.
