I have a VM of Ubuntu 10.10 x86, and I need to build a Mercurial installation against Python 2.4. I have to do this because the web host I am working on has Python 2.4 as the latest copy of Python.
In Ubuntu 9.10 it was a simple as editing two make files to target the
python2.4 executable, and doing a
make local against it. However since Ubuntu 10.10 does not have 2.4 I need to install the base, libraries, and dev tools for 2.4.
How do I go about doing this? I wasn't able to find a good walk-through via Google.
