Re: OT: Python, Zope and Pone (RHEL v4)

Thank for the suggestion. 

I have compiled a new version of Python into /opt.  The version of Zope (2.9.5) that Plone wants will not compile.  It keeps telling me zlib is not installed when in fact it is.  It is looking for a library called zlib when it should be looking for libz.  Zope 3.3.0 compiles fine but Plone will not use it - ARG!!!

Do not replace the system Python with a newer one.
You probably could install a newer python and its entire tree in another
location on the filesystem (maybe /usr/local or /opt ??) but leave the
system python intact or you will likely end up crying very bitter tears.

I do not know of an rpm packaging for python that puts it in another
location but they probably could be built w/o too much trouble by just
redefining a few rpm macros before building them - and possibly change
the name of the package in spec file to make things easier on you.
