Installing Python 3.4.2 on CentOS 6.  Clean install.  Using procedure in README file:

make test

2 tests fail in "make test" The first one is because the FTP client
test is trying to test against a site that is long gone, the Digital Equipment Corporation Systems Research Center in Palo Alto:

ERROR: test_ftp (test.test_urllib2net.OtherNetworkTests) (url='')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/staging/local/python/Python-3.4.3/Lib/urllib/", line 1399, in ftp_open
    fw = self.connect_ftp(user, passwd, host, port, dirs, req.timeout)
  File "/home/staging/local/python/Python-3.4.3/Lib/urllib/", line 1445, in connect_ftp
    dirs, timeout)
  File "/home/staging/local/python/Python-3.4.3/Lib/urllib/", line 2243, in __init__
  File "/home/staging/local/python/Python-3.4.3/Lib/urllib/", line 2249, in init
    self.ftp.connect(, self.port, self.timeout)
  File "/home/staging/local/python/Python-3.4.3/Lib/", line 153, in connect
  File "/home/staging/local/python/Python-3.4.3/Lib/", line 512, in create_connection
    raise err
  File "/home/staging/local/python/Python-3.4.3/Lib/", line 503, in create_connection
TimeoutError: [Errno 110] Connection timed out

The second one is failing because "readline" (probably GNU readline) didn't behave as expected. The installed GCC is
"gcc (GCC) 4.4.6 20110731 (Red Hat 4.4.6-3)", which came with
"CentOS release 6.2 (Final)".  This is a long-running production server.
Is that too old?
