Known Issues

This section lists known issues with ActivePython and Python.

Windows

Mac OS X

  • 64-bit ActivePython build on Mac requires a 64-bit Tcl/Tk 8.5+ to function properly. If you are on Leopard, you will have to install ActiveTcl 8.5 (i386) and launch Python as arch -i386 python to use Tkinter. On Snow Leopard, ActivePython uses Apple's Tcl/Tk. Also see the FAQ.

  • The following core Python tests fails: test_aepack test_applesingle test_macostools.
