Description Pedro Giffuni 2013-04-07 00:33:05 UTC
Python version 2.7.4 was released. This is 2.7 series bugfix release. It includes hundreds of bugfixes over 2.7.3.

The build system has probably not changed sifnificantly. I would think it is very important to update this before the next AOO release as there are significant improvements for windows and MacOSX.
Comment 1 Pedro Giffuni 2013-04-08 19:52:06 UTC
FWIW, the sources for Python 2.7.4 have been uploaded in Apache Extras to make easier the update.

Updating this should be relatively easy:

- update external_deps.lst
- Update the makefiles in python/
- In python/ edit the patches and prj/d.lst to replace 2.7.3 to 2.7.4
- Fix any breakage from the last step.

FWIW, I still think that system python 2.7.1 in MacOS
should be used if it is available.

Thank you for updating the internal python, I am sure
it will be inportant for many users :).

After the update to Python 2.7.5, it can not be started up on Linux 32bit.
Here is part of the traceback: 
  File "/mnt/hd/ooo/main/instsetoo_native/", line 352, in _init_posix
    from _sysconfigdata import build_time_vars
ImportError: No module named _sysconfigdata

_sysconfigdata file is generated during the building of Python since Python 2.7.5 [1], back ported from 3.X. 


Maybe all library files should be copied from python-inst.

Comment 17 jsc 2013-06-04 16:11:15 UTC
 hanya: do you know more about this? I have delivered sysconfigdata and rebuildpyuno but it still crashed.
Comment 18 hanya 2013-06-04 16:20:25 UTC
@jsc: did you rebuild pyuno module? Python files are delivered from python module 
and after that, pyuno/zipcore takes care them again. file should be there in solver/xxx/lib/python/lib and 
pyuno/xxx/bin/python-core-version/lib (and also zipped package).
Comment 19 jsc 2013-06-04 16:27:12 UTC
yes I rebuild pyuno but it's seems that my build contained some old stuff, now it works
