The following message comes from Paul Barlow who has a Mac:
"If you are considering installing Python2.3 on Mac OS 10.3 using fink
beware that there appears to be a problem with python23.patch in the
finkinfo directory. From what we can see, the consequence is that
Python fails to find tkinter.
Look at /sw/fink/10.3/stable/main/finkinfo/languages/python23.patch (it
is a text file) and see if it ends mid-sentence. If so, copy it to a
different name and try replacing with the attached version before you
ask fink to install Python2.3."
If anyone wants the patch file please contact me and I will forward it.
(Not sure jiscmail allows attachments.)
