Python 2.4 support

Hi,

i would like to know if python 2.4 is supported?
I tried to build on CentOS 5.2 i686 (gcc (GCC) 4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat
4.1.2-42); Python 2.4.3 (#1, May 24 2008, 13:47:28))
and I’m getting the following errors (extracted from the rpmbuild log -
I can send the whole log if necessary):

i would like to know if python 2.4 is supported?

I would think it depends on your Boost/GCC combination, judging from
some of these posts:

http://mail.python.org/pipermail/cplusplus-sig/2005-December/009586.html
http://trac.mapnik.org/ticket/252

My suggestion is to get a newer version of Boost.

Cheers,

Hi,

with boost-1.38 I’m getting the same error.
Here is where I see a similar error and suggestion that’s a python 2.4
problem:

Hi.

It seems that Avogadro implicitly depends on python 2.5.
I had the same problem in CentOS-5.2 a few months ago and
did not go any further since the system has many dependencies
on python 2.4 and I did not dare to spoil a production machine.

I think you would have to install 2.5 and modify CMakeLists.txt (?).
There is some infos in this link:

Hi,

thank you for the information, but i can’t go for python2.5 on CentOS
5.2 for the same reasons.
Is anybody willing to backport avogadro for python2.4?

Best regards,

Marcin
