    Python installation Error


    I am trying to install Python 3,3,2 on my Fedora 14 OS. As the Readme file asked me to do, I followed the commands "./configure", then "make" and then "make test". The command "make test" did not go through, and it returned an error

    TypeError: %d format: a number is required, not error_perm
    Ran 15 tests in 10.115s
    FAILED (errors=1, skipped=1)
    test test_urllib2net failed
    make: *** [test] Error 1

    Can someone help me out ?

    Ignore that error, assume your installation is fine. According to
    http://bugs.python.org/issue17160 try to run the test without the
    flag if you still care.

    Unrelated, you may need to install additional libraries to get full python functionality. Such as 3rd party database software.
    [code]Code tags[/code] are essential for python code and Makefiles!
