I'm trying to install Python 2.7.3 on my CentOS 5.50 machine. Download, extract, configure (with
--prefix=/usr/local) are fine. Its the
make that throws this error:
gcc -pthread -c -fno-strict-aliasing -g -O2 -DNDEBUG -g -fwrapv -O3 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -I. -IInclude -I./Include -DPy_BUILD_CORE \ -DSVNVERSION="\"`LC_ALL=C svnversion .`\"" \ -DHGVERSION="\"`LC_ALL=C `\"" \ -DHGTAG="\"`LC_ALL=C `\"" \ -DHGBRANCH="\"`LC_ALL=C `\"" \ -o Modules/getbuildinfo.o ./Modules/getbuildinfo.c gcc.orig: directory": No such file or directory ./Modules/getbuildinfo.c: In function '_Py_svnversion': ./Modules/getbuildinfo.c:63: error: missing terminating " character ./Modules/getbuildinfo.c:63: error: expected expression before ';' token make-3.79.1-p7: *** [Modules/getbuildinfo.o] Error 1
I have been scouring the web for a few days now in an attempt to self-solve this one, but I've come up empty. One suggestion I came across was regarding "Developer Tools" being installed on the system, which I believe are properly installed, but I am not 100% sure.
If anyone has any information regarding this issue, I'd appreciate the assistance.
I've compiled and installed Python 3.3 without a hitch. The issue definitely lies with SVN. Although the packages I'm using are supported in Python 3.3, I'd still like to get 2.7.3 on there, so I'm still looking for assistance.
