I've recently begun learning the Python Scripting Language, and have been using it for a few projects. Until recently, I have been quite pleased with the posted python2.5 package (I use a .unc version). Now that my curiosity has brought me to GUI scripting in Python, I have found that the posted package cannot even run IDLE, the GUI based Python IDE.
After a few posts here on the subject, I resolved to create a more complete python2.5 package. Perhaps I've bitten off more than I can chew...
I attempted to use a combination of apt-get and deb2dsl, but found that the Debian packages listed are of an earlier version of Python. Unsure if packages from Debian's Testing or Unstable areas would be compatible, I attempted to work from source, with little success.
Should I use a different distro as my host for building the new package?
