Sébastien, would you like to provide an updated version of that file? The current contents look hopelessly outdated.
msg128279 - (view) Author: Sébastien Sablé (sable) Date: 2011-02-10 10:54
Yes I will do that.
I am currently reinstalling some buildbot environments for Python on AIX 5.3 and AIX 6.1 and once that is done, I will rewrite the note.

can you take a look at issue 730467? That's a trivial patch to correct a compilation issue on AIX with a C++ compiler; and that means one less entry in the AIX-NOTES file to write before the 3.2 release...

Yes, this is in my bug queue. But unless Georg decides otherwise, this will go in after 3.2 is released (in 3.2.1 probably).

Here is a first version of this doc for Python 3.2.
It would be great if someone could proof read it since I am not a native english speaker (though it is not high level literature...).

Could this doc be added before the 3.2 release?
I think it is convenient for the (few) AIX users and harmless.

Here is a proofread diff.  I did make one substantive change: I added a comment about the test suite not running with the default maxdata and not raising memory errors with 512MB.  Is that correct?
msg128737 - (view) Author: Sébastien Sablé (sable) Date: 2011-02-17 16:42
Yes it is correct. And thank you for proof reading it too.

Here is a new version of the file:
It integrates the corrections by R. David, and I also modified the "memory limitations" section in order to use ldedit rather than some flags for the linker.

Committed as r88438.  Thanks!

Please indicate how much of this needs to be backported to 2.7 and 3.1.
msg128852 - (view) Author: Sébastien Sablé (sable) Date: 2011-02-19 15:50

I intend to check that branch 2.7 works fine on AIX once I will have finished with 3.x (which should be soon).
I will then update this file for Python 2.7 (there shouldn't be much changes hopefully).

Ping? :)
msg380785 - (view) Author: Irit Katriel (iritkatriel) * (Python committer) Date: 2020-11-11 18:27
The version in the patch was added as Misc/README.AIX, and the backporting 2.7 and 3.1 is no longer relevant.
