GPL and python modules

Friday, March 28, 2008

I should probably google this, but can't think of good keywords. So instead this is a "dear lazy web" post.

Is importing a python module considered linking for the GPL? I.e. are you allowed to import a python module into an script or module that has a non-GPL-comptible license?

Thanks!

Cheating the KAME turtule

Thursday, March 27, 2008

This is shocking. Even though I have not yet used IPv6 I can see the the KAME turtle dance! I won't give you a direct link but SixXS privde an IPv6->IPv4 service as well as an IPv4->IPv6 service. Feels bad having used the 4->6 bit...

OmniORB 4.1.1 in lenny!

Sunday, March 23, 2008

Something that happened about a week ago I think. But omniORB 4.1.1 finally make it into Debian testing aka lenny! This means that python-omniorb 3.1, which has been waiting for a while now, also make it into lenny!

It has been stalled for ages since we had problems with the ARM port not managing to compile omniORB 4.1.X. Thanks to Thomas Girard for his work on this.

I've already committed the update to 4.1.2 to the svn repo, omniORBpy 3.2 will follow soon...

Compiling libtool examples

Sunday, March 23, 2008

This is more a reminder to myself, but here's how to compile the libtool examples:

$ cd demo
$ aclocal
$ libtoolize --automake
$ automake --add-missing
$ autoconf
$ ./configure
$ make

It's really how to bootstrap any GNU autotools using application I suppose.
