error: command '/opt/freeware/lib/python2.7/config/ld_so_aix' failed with exit status 8

Hello,

I have this error occurred when installing Python2.7 on AIX 6 OS :

 error: command '/opt/freeware/lib/python2.7/config/ld_so_aix' failed with exit status 8

Can I install separately ld_so_aix ? How ? Where can I get the library ?

Thanks for your reply

Hi,

Try install the rpm. Python 2.7.12 and all its dependencies are available on AIX toolbox.

https://public.dhe.ibm.com/aix/freeSoftware/aixtoolbox/RPMS/ppc/python/python-2.7.12-2.aix6.1.ppc.rpm

Hi,

Thanks for your reply, it seems to be better but I face another issue :

The command rpm -Uvh python-2.7.12-2.aix6.1.ppc.rpm send :
error: failed dependencies:
        libncurses.a(libncurses.so.6) is needed by python-2.7.12-2
        libpanel.a(libpanel.so.6) is needed by python-2.7.12-2

Do you know where I can get that library.

Hi,

Since AIX isn't open source finding the right dependencies can be a real pain.

OSS4AIX might be your best shot: http://www.oss4aix.org/download/latest/aix61/ 

If you cannot find suitable dependencies  then you can try to compile the source code yourself using the XLC compiler. The compiler isn't free software but you can use it for a 60 day trial period:

https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/downloads/r/xlcplusaix/

Else you can try to force the installation with no dependencies:

rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps python-2.7.12-2.aix6.1.ppc.rpm

Open in new window

Basically since AIX is ac closed source unix system this comment is his best chance of solving his problem.
