Is is possible to install Mercurial on AIX system without root? I'm an ordinary user of our colleges IBM cluster and in there I fond no version control software.
Could you show a brief guide of how to build mercurial from the source code on AIX?
Update The python on the system is incomplete. When use
python setup.py install --user
to install Mercurial, I get error
"Couldn't import standard bz2 (incomplete Python install)."
I also tried to compile python 2.6.8 and get the error:
Failed to find the necessary bits to build these modules: _sqlite3 bsddb185 dl imageop linuxaudiodev ossaudiodev spwd sunaudiodev To find the necessary bits, look in setup.py in detect_modules() for the module's name. Failed to build these modules: _bsddb _ctypes _curses _curses_panel _tkinter fcntl
