This is the newest version of Python I could find for Cacko, and in general it works well. Thank you for providing it, Jiba!
Unfortunately I can't get a piece of software to run with it, because some packages are missing. Which ones I'm not entirely sure, right now it complains about sqlite3. The Python part of this module seems to be included, but it fails to import the C part of the module (or so it seems). Anyway, when importing sqlite3, it complains about module _sqlite3 not available.
So far my search for a more complete or up to date Python has not been very successful. I found a Python 2.4 package by mickeyl, which is very good as well, but it does not include sqlite, and mickeyl does not offer a package for sqlite either. As for the Kopsis image, the sqlite it comes with seems to be too old, and while a loop mounted image certainly saves space, it's not possible to install additional python modules in the directory.
I would love to be able to build my own version of Python for Cacko, but so far, I have not found a good How-To. I know my way around Linux on my Desktop PC (experience with various distros including LFS and Gentoo), but embedded devices are like a different world for me. I don't know where to get a toolchain / cross compiling environment / emulator that allows downloading and compiling stuff for Cacko as easy as it is for the PC. Any pointers?
