Reasonable, sure, but does it fit your needs. That's a question we can't
answer for you.

Based on what is below, that is building a chroot environment, great if
that's what your after, not so great if you really want a systemic
installation.

Subject: [IBMiOSS] bpython

Hi all,

If I'm accessing IBMi via SSH and running bash 4.4 on the IBMi, would it be
reasonable to expect that the bpython interpreter would run ok?

I tried installing it into a venv and hit a snag as GCC isn't installed on
the IBMi.

I can see Aaron Bartell's instructions on how to install GCC at the bottom
of this post:

https://www.mcpressonline.com//programming/scripting/techtip-db2-adapter-for
-shells


which amounts to running:

$ cd /QOpenSys

$ git clone <git@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>git@xxxxxxxxxxxxx:litmis/ibmichroot.git
$ cd ibmichroot
$ ./pkg_setup.sh pkg_perzl_gcc-4.8.3.lst

Does this seem a reasonable thing to do?

thanks and regards,
Craig
