64 Bit Python

Hi everyone,

I am trying to comple 64 Bit Python and I got the error below. Any ideas?

/usr/local/pa20_64/bin/gcc -c -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -I. -I./Include -DPy_BUILD_CORE -o Objects/classobject.o Objects/classobject.c
virtual memory exhausted: Not enough space
*** Error exit code 1

Or is there a prebuilt HPUX package for 64 Bit Python?

Re: 64 Bit Python

You could try it without the -g flag.

Also see


although it's not clear whether it is 32 or 64 bit version.

Re: 64 Bit Python

The error "Not enough space" makes me think that, you should check
swapinfo, vmstat

Re: 64 Bit Python

I would take the compiler at its word and increase the tunables. Most likely it is maxdsiz but it could be maxssiz. You could also need to increase swapspace but I think maxdsiz is your boy.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
