11.23 & Python => "Name collision between.."?

Hi Everyone,

Just installed ixPython_A.08.00-2.5.001_HP-UX_B.11.23_IA+PA.depot
(availible from http://software.hp.com) on my machine (HP-UX B.11.23 U ia64)

When running python I get the following message:

# python
Python 2.5 (r25:51908, Oct 31 2006, 19:40:53) [C] on hp-ux11
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

>>>

Any idea whats causing this?

I installed the 11.11 package on another machine
and there it works fine..

Thanks in advance,

Michael

Yepp!

Setting the TERMINFO solved it :-)

# export TERMINFO=/usr/share/lib/terminfo
# python
Python 2.5 (r25:51908, Oct 31 2006, 19:40:53) [C] on hp-ux11

python will try to load /etc/termcap (or /usr/share/lib/termcap)instead....

Thanks!

Another way to solve this is to install
the ncurses package from:

http://hpux.its.tudelft.nl/hppd/hpux/Sysadmin/ncurses-5.5/

python will search for "/usr/local/share/terminfo" before using /etc/termcap...
