Still on the yak shave expedition.
I’ve written some simple scripts and files to set up and build python 2.3, 2.4, and 2.5 in separate prefixes to be able to test my software against these versions.
If you’re interested, in theory it should be really simple:
- Install jhbuild
- Check out my python jhbuild directory: svn co https://thomas.apestaart.org/thomas/svn/jhbuild/python
- run ‘make’
As the README says, this should go on to build all versions of python, and install some scripts.
After that, you just run py-2.3 to go into a shell with Python 2.3 on your path.
Don’t say I never did anything for you.
