kilaueabartPython 2.5.5 (problem fixed)20110129 22:08
I have been told that OS4.1 Update 2 includes Python 2.5.5, but I still have 2.5.1 in spite of installing update 2 last spring.

I just now downloaded and unarchived AmigaOS4.1Update2.lha (14285042 bytes after removing some "Warning" from the front) from Hyperion again, and it still has exactly the same Python files I installed last year, including the 70216-byte C:Python command dated 2010-03-27.

So where is Python 2.5.5 *really*?

Only for betatesters.

Not true, I'm not a beta tester.

I have the 2.5.5 version.

And comes with the update 2, so I don't know how you get the 2.5.1.

You try the pyversion.py script, to see the real version ?

Oh sorry...


then you may need to install Update2 again. Something may have gone wrong.

I'm not currently betatesting either and I have 2.5.5. You beat me to suggeting a re-install.

"I don't know how you get the 2.5.1. "

Me either, but I obviously goofed recently. (I don't remember how to do quotes. "[Q] ... [/Q]"?)

"You try the pyversion.py script, to see the real version ?"

Since Python didn't work, I wouldn't have been able to try that script.

But someone wisely suggested I check libpython25.so, and sure enough I had the one that belongs to 2.5.1. I must have copied it by mistake from 4.1u1 at some point. I unarc'ed the one from the Update 2 archive and replaced the bad one and now Python works again, as 2.5.5.
