I am having a very odd problem with using python on gumstix.
Here is what I have done:
- downloaded the most current buildroot
- changed the make file to include python
- flashed my 200xm
The problem is that when I import any standard (ie: time, termios,
etc) modules into python it crashes with a Segmentation fault
However, if I then start python again, without rebooting, the same import works.
Here is a simple program to demonstrate this problem:
a = time.time()
This is error that is printed using the python -v option
# python -v test1.py
Python 2.4.2 (#1, Apr 28 2006, 12:09:09)
[GCC 3.4.5] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
Now if I run the program again it works ok (it also works with the -v option):
# python test1.py
Let me know if this question is more of a python issue then a gumstix problem.
