HPUX 11.31 IA python installed but giving errors


HPUX 11.31 IA python installed but giving errors

I have a server running hpux 11.31 on an itanium server. I went to the HP software download site and downloaded ixPython_A.14.00- This is the name of the file under hpux11.31. I installed the depot on the server. When I test the installation I get the following error.

# python
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 1, in
from ctypes import *
File "/opt/iexpress/python/lib/python2.6/ctypes/", line 10, in
from _ctypes import Union, Structure, Array
ImportError: No module named _ctypes

Any help would be much appreciated. I cannot seem to find ctypes for hpux.

Re: HPUX 11.31 IA python installed but giving errors


Internet Express packages are usually pretty well tested and include all dependencies.


Environment variables. SHLIB_PATH specficically
Actual python code for errors.
Report the behavior to HP as a possible bug.
