I have a closed-source 32bit database application running on a 64bit
CentOS 5.2 system which is running very well however i am looking at
developing some python applications that require access to the data and
the vendor only provides a 32bit c library.
So while attempting to utilize the library in python with ctypes it
became obvious that the 64bit python cannot use the 32bit c library.
So what are my choices?
1. is there a way to use the 32bit library in 64bit python i haven't found?
2. install 32bit python on the 64bit system. 'yum list python.i386'
shows that 32bit python is not available.
3. manually compile and install 32bit python and _ALL_ its libraries
under /opt. has someone already done this? are the RPMs available?
let me just say that i am no python expert, yet, so bare with me.
Any help would be appreciated.
