Has anyone been able to compile Stackless Python on Debian on
an SGI Indy or similar hardware? I get parse errors in the
stackless API header file, but it would appear to compile
fine on other architectures. This would lead me to
conclude it's a compiler bug. Missing header files should
throw different errors, so I'm doubting it's a missing header
gcc -c -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -I. -I./Include -I./Stackless -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -o Modules/python.o Modules/python.c
In file included from Modules/python.c:5:
Stackless/stackless_api.h:41: parse error before '*' token
Stackless/stackless_api.h:41: warning: type defaults to `int' in declaration of `PyTasklet_New'
There follow many similar errors but that is the first.
The offending line is the uncommented line here:
* create a new tasklet object. 36
* type must be derived from PyTasklet_Type or NULL. 37
* func must (yet) be a PyFunction object (normal usecase) 38
* or NULL, if the tasklet is being used via capture(). 39
*/ // line 40
DL_EXPORT(PyTaskletObject *) PyTasklet_New(PyTypeObject *type, PyObject *func);
/* 0 = success -1 = failure */ // line 42
Line 30 is fine:
DL_EXPORT(PyTypeObject *) PyTasklet_Type;
I think DL_EXPORT is defined okay.
Either I missed replies from the Stackless people, or they didn't
repsond. My suspicion is that it's not a problem with the source
code. Any suggestions? (I updated stackless from stackless.com CVS
today and my Indy apt-get updates itself nightly.) I tried compiling
stackless on my Indy a few months ago with the same problem. I've
never gotten Stackless to compile properly on my Indy.
