Hi everybody,

I just tried to install the kit for 2.7.8 on an rx2620, but it fails at the last step with the following error:

Code:

%DCL-W-INSFPRM, missing command parameters - supply all required parameters
%RENAME-E-SEARCHFAIL, error searching for PCSI_DESTINATION:[python278]bin.DIR;1
-RMS-F-DEV, error in device name or inappropriate device type for operation
%PCSI-I-SPAWNEXE, error executing: @PCSI$SOURCE:[TMP]PYTHON278$POST_CONFIGURE.COM
 
%PCSI-E-EXEPSTFAIL, product supplied EXECUTE POSTINSTALL procedure failed
-RENAME-E-SEARCHFAIL, error searching for !AS
%PCSI-E-OPFAILED, operation failed
Terminating is strongly recommended.  Do you want to terminate? [YES]


Has anybody else experienced the same problem?

Any particular reason not to use the prebuilt LD disks?

I never used those. I usually just install the individual packages I need (zlib, libbz2, libxml2, etc) and the Python kit itself.

Is it easier to use the LD images?

I was unable to reproduce the problem.

The procedure PYTHON278$POST_CONFIGURE.COM is generated by the kit construction procedure.

Also, on my system development, I install the kit without any problem:
Code:
$ dir sys$common:[python278]

Directory SYS$COMMON:[python278]

bin.DIR;1           Demo.DIR;1          Doc.DIR;1           Include.DIR;1
lib.DIR;1           LICENSE.;1          local.DIR;1         Misc.DIR;1
PKG-INFO.;1         README.;1           tmp.DIR;1           Tools.DIR;1
vms.DIR;1

Total of 13 files.

$ prod remove python278

The following product has been selected:
    JFP I64VMS PYTHON278 V1.0-0            Layered Product

Do you want to continue? [YES]

The following product will be removed from destination:
    JFP I64VMS PYTHON278 V1.0-0            DISK$I64SYS:[VMS$COMMON.]

Portion done: 0%

The following product has been selected:
    JFP I64VMS PYTHON278 V1.0-0            Layered Product

Do you want to continue? [YES]

You will be asked to choose options, if any, for each selected product and for
any products that may be installed to satisfy software dependency requirements.

The following product has been installed:
    JFP I64VMS PYTHON278 V1.0-0            Layered Product
$


The beginning of the procedure is :

Code:
$ set process/parse_style=extended
$
$ def pcsi_destination/trans=conc 'f$trnlnm("PCSI$DESTINATION")'
$ set default pcsi_destination:[000000]
$ rename [python278]bin.DIR;1 [python278]bin.DIR;1


So how do you install the kit, do you specify a disk destination ?

> Is it easier to use the LD images?

It is much easier!
- Download the two ZIP files.
- Unzip the two DSK files from the ZIPs.
- Connect the two DSK files using LD.
- Mount the LD disks using MOUNT.
- Run the lib_startup and python_startup COM files.
- Add @python_vms:setup to your (sy-)login COM procs.

On my Alpha system, these are the two current LD disks:
Code:

$ d util:[python]*06*

Directory UTIL:[PYTHON]


JFPLIB0006A.DSK;3      400000   6-JUL-2013 08:08:15.93
JFPPY0600A.DSK;3      1200000  12-SEP-2014 08:31:57.96

Total of 2 files, 1600000 blocks.
$

And this is my startup that runs at boot:
Code:

$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
$ ld CONNECT util:[python]JFPLIB0006A.dsk lda1:
$ mount/system lda1: JFPLIB0006A
$ @lda1:[000000]lib_startup
$!
$ ld CONNECT util:[python]JFPPY0600A.DSK lda2:
$ mount/system lda2: JFPPY0600A
$ @lda2:[000000]python_startup
$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's all!
Code:

$ python
Python 2.7.8 (default, Sep 10 2014, 15:30:18) [DECC] on OpenVMS
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>>  Exit

$ show log python_root
   "PYTHON_ROOT" = "$1$LDA2:[PYTHON278.]" (LNM$SYSTEM_TABLE)
$


I finaly usualy run the compile_all COM file according to the
installation page to (re-) build all .pyc files.

I did the installation with my own account, which doesn't have all privileges. I just tried again with the system account and the installation completed successfully. Sorry for the trouble.

To jescab: thanks for the info for the LD images. I'll give it a try when I have a chance.
