python2.4 mac_ver reports incorrect version

Reported by: wichert@… Owned by: jaroel (Roel Bruggink)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.8.1
Keywords: Cc: grahamperrin@…, mf2k (Frank Schima), ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Port: python24

Description

On python 2.4 the version information is missing:

Python 2.4.6 (#1, Oct 28 2009, 13:08:10) 
[GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5646)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import platform
>>> platform.mac_ver()
('', ('', '', ''), '')

Python 2.6 gets it correct:

python2.6
Python 2.6.2 (r262:71600, Oct  7 2009, 14:08:41) 
[GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5646)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import platform
>>> platform.mac_ver()
('10.6.1', ('', '', ''), 'i386')

this breaks setuptools since it can no longer match the architecture of the current system with the architecture of an egg and will refuse to install them.

Port: python24 added

I'm surprised python24 even builds on 10.6, let alone works right; what do you need 2.4 for, as whatever it is should be moved to 2.6?

comment:3 Changed 11 years ago by wichert@…

Plons still requires python 2.4. There is a python 2.4 buildout in the collective on svn.plone.org which works correctly on 10.6, so this is certainly doable.

2.5 gets it wrong too:

Python 2.5.4 (r254:67916, Oct 12 2009, 05:38:57) 
[GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5646)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import platform
>>> platform.mac_ver()
('4294967306.4294967302.4294967297', ('', '', ''), '')

This is pretty clearly an upstream issue. The Mac code simply wasn't 64-bit compatible until 2.6, our backports of some patches to get 2.5 sort-of working notwithstanding.

comment:5 Changed 11 years ago by wichert@…

This patch from the python buildout on svn.plone.org might do the trick. In addition to that patch that buildout does two things: set CFLAGS=-arch x86_64 and make sure MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.6, both of which macports already does iirc.

The modules gestalt and MacOS aren't included. It fails in platform.py and returns the defaults

    try:
        import gestalt
        import MacOS
    except ImportError:
        return release,versioninfo,machine

The above patch is tested on Leopard and Snow Leopard, and works.

Can someone commit this?

Added diff based on latest svn version (Portfile.diff). The three patches should go in the files directory.

Could someone commit this?

Shouldn't the portfile's revision also be incremented?

comment:14 Changed 10 years ago by mf2k (Frank Schima)

Done in r70279.
