[maemo-users] Python versions, build in scratchbox

Hi, you have to install python2.5-dev package in scratchbox (apt-get install
To install your package you can use "python2.5-dev setup.py install"

This message "sem_post: Function not implemented" is a qemu problem
but compilation should work.

If this package (egenix-mx-base) was only in python (without bindings in C),
you can install it
directly in the device, because there isn't gcc and development libraries in
n810 device.
