/Users doesn't appear in python24's contents for me. What files does it put in there for you?

comment:2 Changed 9 years ago by robitaille@…

It puts files inside ~/Library/Python/2.4 - I've attached a verbose log of the install to this ticket in case this helps. Note that this does not happen with python25, python26, or python27

Log file for install

For info, I have a .pydistutils.cfg file that contains:

install_lib = ~/Library/Python/$py_version_short/site-packages
install_scripts = ~/usr/bin
install_data = ~/usr/share
install_headers = ~/usr/include

If I remove this file, then the install proceeds fine. The other python versions don't seem to be affected by this file, so I wonder why python24 is?

It's probably the --no-user-cfg option new in 2.7 (see which has been back-ported to 2.5 and 2.6 for the ports.

If people really still care about 2.4 I guess someone would need to bring those patches to it as well.

This is technically a dupe of #9831. Nobody seemed to really care about 2.4 even back then, so the ticket was closed without backporting further than 2.5.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

python24 is deprecated and scheduled to be removed in a couple of months.
