Subject Re: Pylucene installation issue on Ubuntu LInux
Date Mon, 10 Aug 2009 12:54:26 GMT
As I mentioned earlier jcc got installed to dist-packages sub-directory of
python2.6, instead of site-packages,  and modifying the Makefile to reflect
that was not working porperly, so i simply created a sym link in
/usr/lib/python2.6 wiht a name "site-packages" and made it point to the
actual jcc installation (rather, faulty in my case) i.e
/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages. Then I used the normal process of
installation, make and make install without any errors. Importing lucene is
not giving any errors( so far) and i guess we've to load JVM before doing
anything else, right? using the lucene.initVM(lucene.CLASSPATH) statement.
And yes I've to add the ld path to my .bashrc file this ways, i guess this
is okey ( its working fine, without this it was giving errors saying not found), this is what i did:

Finally I'm done installing PyLucene on my box after fighting for 3-4 days.
Sounds stupid?Yes, but true in my case.

Thank you very much @ Christian & Andi
