python / popen / itanium

Running python v2.5 on an Integrity server running OpenVMS v8.3. Using os.popen to call the GNAT Pro Ada compiler/linker => Hangs and never returns? (Use os.popen many other places and it seems to work just fine.) If use os.system instead => Everything compiles and links (~10 min.), but don't want to use os.system because want the standard output info back (it should not be large). Is this a known problem? Is there a workaround? I have fooled around with subprocess.Popen, but it does not seem to work at all?

Thanks,
John

John,

this is a know problem which has been fixed a few month ago.

Upgrade to the latest version and this will work (I expect...).

Thanks JF. Our system guy is on travel, but he will install the new version when he gets back. Will let you know the results.
