Hi Jim,

Python will try to use the same compiler to build its packages as was used
to build it, which means that when we built it with XLC anybody installing
a package with native code would need XLC installed as well. To make it
easier for people to use our Python with native code, we had some hack way
to do it by switching out a file that Python stored its compiler
configuration, but I can't find it at the moment. In the end, we just
decided it would be easier to rebuild with GCC to make it easier for
everyone. You'll need PTF SI59051 and then you just need to install GCC.
There's various ways to do that, but we ship a script with OPS that helps
you install it:

Subject: [IBMiOSS] AIX Compiler and Python Crypto Package Install on
Sent by: "OpenSource" <opensource-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

We have a SalesForce integration project that we are attempting from one

of our custom application systems
and we want to attempt to use Python to perform the integration.

We need the following python package (to perform the JWT OAuth
authentication signing request)

We have a few questions as we have not attempted this level of

1. We need the IBM AIX compiler installed to install the above Python
package as it attempts to use the AIX C compiler upon installation.
I assume we need to license the compiler, does anyone have any tips
can give us some direction on exactly how to pursue?

Found this links:


We need these compilers: XL C/C++ for AIX, XL C for AIX, or XL
for AIX
and this PRPQ? 5799-PTL - Tools for Developers for i5/OS? PRPQ

2. Has anyone integrated the above crypto package on the IBMi?
