Whenever I start a python shell in DrPython, the prompt
window opens, and "/usr/bin/python -u -i" appears, but
then the program freezes, and I have to SIGKILL it.
There is no output on the CLI or anything, and so I
don't know how to get any more information on the problem.

I am using DrPython-3.10.13, with python-2.4.1, and
wxPython-2.6.0.0 on Gentoo.

Thanks.

    On windows, it works.

    Sorry for not providing a better answer than to wait until
    Dan's response :)

    The problem stopped happening for me a while ago - not sure
    why...

    No idea.

    Sometimes releases of wxPython on certain platforms have
    rather large bugs that are not quite known. Try the wxDemo
    app, and select the Process module. Does that work?

    I know there have been alternating issues with the gtk and
    gtk2 ports of wxpython on linux over a span of releases.

    Unforturnately I am just on windows for the moment, so I
    cannot dig into this further. This is an issue with
    wxPython though, especially if the same code is working on
    one platform and not another.
