I'm trying to install Python from the V8.0 Freeware disk.

I'm running OpenVMS V7.3-2 with the UPDATE V7.0 and ACRTL V3.0 plus some others that probably aren't pertinent here (like BACKUP V6.0).

The PCSI file I have is called JFP-AXPVMS-PYTHON235-V0150-0-1.PCSI. I've already installed zlib and libbz2 from the same disk.

The progress indicator gets as far as 90% and then:

Quote:
%DCL-W-ACTIMAGE, error activating image LIBZ_SHR32
-CLI-E-IMGNAME, image file DQB0:[USER.][ZLIB.ZLIB-1_2_1-2]LIBZSHR32-1_2_1-2.EXE
-SYSTEM-F-SHRIDMISMAT, ident mismatch with shareable image


I'm not too sure what I'm looking for, but with ANALYZE/IMAGE I could see that the Python executable and the libz shareable image were linked against different versions of SYS$PUBLIC_VECTORS. For this global section the libz executable had:
Quote:
global section major id: %x'6A', minor id %x'5FAEE6'
match control: ISD$K_MATEQU


The Python image had the following version information for this global section:
Quote:
global section major id: %x'12', minor id %x'174543'
match control: ISD$K_MATEQU


So I can tell that both Python and zlib expect an exact match on the version of SYS$PUBLIC_VECTORS, but they differ as to which version they're looking for.

Is that significant?
Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks,

Galen

Galen,

You need to install zlib 1.2.3
You can download all the new kits from http://vmspython.dyndns.org/anonymous/kits/axp/

I also suggest you try to install Python 2.5 instead of 2.3.5

There are a lot of new and interesting features in 2.5 which are missing in 2.3.5.
There are also a lot of bugfix...

I've just downloaded the newest kits for libbz2, zlib, and python. I'll try them out today or tomorrow.

Thanks for your help, JFP.

I completely deinstalled the three old kits, including the files left behind when the python install aborted (it doesn't clean up after itself I guess.)

Then I installed the three new kits that I downloaded yesterday from http://vmspython.dyndns.org/anonymous/kits/axp/vms73/. However, it appears that the zlib v1.2.3 kit actually installs only v1.2.1, v1.2.1-0, v1.2.1-1, and v1.2.1-2, along with a zipfile containing the sources for v1.2.1.

As I expected after seeing this, the Python install failed exactly as before.

Looks like a packaging error for zlib v1.2.3?

I just check the kit,
ZLIB-V0102-3-1.ZIP contains JFP-AXPVMS-ZLIB-V0102-3-1.PCSI which install zlib 1.2.3, part extract from the kit :
Code:

LIBZSHR32-1_2_3_EV4.EXE;1               LIBZSHR32-1_2_3_EV56.EXE;1
LIBZSHR64-1_2_3_EV4.EXE;1               LIBZSHR64-1_2_3_EV56.EXE;1


Can you give me more detail about the problem?
