    Question 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

    Any ideas?
    I'v tried:
    --wxPython-2.3.2.1.tar.gz
    with --wxGTK-2.2.9.tar.gz

    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

    Unhappy 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
