After downloading and doing the typical
configure && make dance I saw this:
Failed to find the necessary bits to build these modules: bsddb185 gdbm linuxaudiodev ossaudiodev readline spwd sunaudiodev
setup.py won’t build the
readline module with the stock readline library on my mac. I already installed libreadline from MacPorts so I applied the following patch:
diff -r c68686a4d0b2 setup.py --- a/setup.py Thu May 15 21:06:32 2008 -0700 +++ b/setup.py Thu May 15 21:49:39 2008 -0700 @@ -298,6 +298,8 @@ # Ensure that /usr/local is always used add_dir_to_list(self.compiler.library_dirs, '/usr/local/lib') add_dir_to_list(self.compiler.include_dirs, '/usr/local/include') + add_dir_to_list(self.compiler.library_dirs, '/opt/local/lib') + add_dir_to_list(self.compiler.include_dirs, '/opt/local/include') # Add paths specified in the environment variables LDFLAGS and # CPPFLAGS for header and library files.
This worked. After installing the rest of the required pysmug dependencies (simplejson, nose, setuptools, pycurl) I was able to build pysmug. Running the tests resulted in the following error:
File ".../nose-0.10.2-py2.6.egg/nose/suite.py", line 377, in makeSuite self.context.setdefault(suite, ).append(context) TypeError: unhashable type: 'ContextSuite'
Out of curiosity I tried two runs each of 2.5 and 2.6, interlaced.
$ python2.6 setup.py nosetests Ran 9 tests in 10.654s $ python2.5 setup.py nosetests Ran 9 tests in 12.128s $ python2.6 setup.py nosetests Ran 9 tests in 11.413s $ python2.5 setup.py nosetests Ran 9 tests in 12.207s
In this extremely unscientific test it appears 2.6 has the edge. I wouldn’t read very much into this.
