Lousy installation support for N800/Maemo. :-(
Note: use this install file ONLY to do an update. More info at PyMaemo website.
PyMaemo is a port of Python programming language to run on Maemo Platform. PyMaemo is designed to have a smaller size and has some optimizations to be more responsive in Maemo based devices.
It's an important part of my tools on N800. Not a full python as on PC, but it's enough for developement and most of other packages can be found in repositories. Also it can be used as powerful calculator: $ python >> from math import *
Obviously sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
For me the install file failed, but apt-get install python2.5-runtime did the trick, after a few warnings (packages cannot be authenticated)
For info I had a working python before (probably installed along canola or ukmp). I installed this one to get PyGTKEditor, which now works. And it is cool.
Hope it helps,
This is, of course, a must-have for any maemo user. Any app that needs Python, needs this. And, from my experience, it installs and works just fine in OS2008.
Mine works fine. This is one of the only ways to do development directly on the tablet. Python has a lot available to it and is a scripting language (iPython is a good add-on also, as is Ruby).
