Python Module 'tarfile'
« on: January 20, 2006, 06:50:27 am »
Anyone know which package the python module tarfile is found in?

Also I was wondering whether it's feasible to compile a "complete" python installation stick it into a squashfs file (similar to what was done for KDE).

I've already compiled the standard python distribution and it looks feasible, obviously the python-* packages from the official feed will have to be uninstalled first. What I'm not sure is how to handle stuff that's not part of the standard python distribution, like pygtk etc. Any ideas?

OK, I've got whole of standard Python compiled, plus pygtk. The only thing I still need is the python bindings for dbus (python-dbus in the official feed). When I tried compiling that I got an error about an undefined something or another (or was it a duplicate something or another?).

Anyway, the question is, is python-dbus crucial to the functioning of pdaXrom? I'm guessing that it's used for the matchbox panel apps (the networking setup, card manager?). Where is python-dbus being used?

There is a copy in the cross-compiler package:
/opt/cross/arm/3.4.5-xscale-softvfp/lib/python2.4/tarfile.py
