Summary: KDevelop 3.0.0a6 configure/compile problem: python
Platform: Compiled Sources
AssignedTo: kdevelop-devel at kdevelop.org
ReportedBy: prefect_ at gmx.net
Version: 3.0.0a6 (using KDE KDE 3.1.3)
Installed from: Compiled From Sources
Compiling with --enable-scripting (I think, I'm not 100% sure about which option triggers this) requires the Python headers.
When the Python executable is installed, but the development headers and libraries are not, the configure script does notice this (it displays something like Python 2.3 headers no libraries no executable $PATH), but it does NOT warn the user about this fact and compilation continues as if nothing was wrong, but fails when compiling the part that needs the Python headers.
Obviously, the configure itself should fail in this case, especially if scripting has been enabled explicitly (in other cases, it might be enough to give a prominent, easily seen warning to the user; I guess that's a matter of taste, really).
