Repeated attempts to install Python 2.5.1 and dependencies fail. I'm running SliTaz 3.0, installed from a download within the last week.
Kernel : Linux 22.214.171.124-slitaz (i586)
Compiled : #1 SMP Sun Mar 28 16:39:51 CEST 2010
C Library : GNU C Library version 2.10.1 (stable)
Distribution : Slitaz GNU/Linux 3.0
Desktop Environment : Unknown (Window Manager: Openbox)
I have tried installing Python using the package manager and tazpkg. In both cases, the terminal screen that opens shows most of the dependencies install properly. The system then decompressess the Python 2.5.1 file and, in the course of expanding the file, the desktop clears as if I had just logged out. I then see the standard SliTaz login screen with a default username of tux. When I log in as tux, my desktop is blank (no desktop icons, no wallpaper). If I open the terminal and try to run Python, the system reports that python is not found.
Do I need to install some other packages before trying to install Python? Do I have a setting messed up on my system? I have not edited any of the startup files, other than to add "lang=en kmap=us" to the /home/boot/grub/menu.lst file.
