1 compile error in wxPython
Hey, I'm having trouble installing wxPython in Linux(Mandrake 8.1). I have wxGtk installed, but for some reason wxPython won't work. I get one compile error of the following error message when running "python setup.py build:"
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1
Thanks in advance.

I can't really help you, I'm a W2K user, but have you looked at the build instructions yet?
If you did, try mailing to the mailing lists, because I don't think there are much wxPython users here.
BTW: you could also try the RPM's.
Some people, when confronted with a problem, think “I know, I'll use regular expressions.” Now they have two problems. - Jamie Zawinski, in comp.lang.emacs

I'll see what i can do
I've tried RPM's as well, and it doesn't work, even when I follow the Build Instructions(BUILD.unix.txt).
I will try to post on mailing lists, and if I get a solution, I'll post it here.

I have built wxWindows on slackware and freebsd without problem.
Make sure you are using compatible versions.
I am not into it much just checked it out.
also your python version
and maybe your gcc version
