Installing Python on suse 9.1

I am trying to install python on my suse box but I dont think im doing it correctly. ./configure and make and make install seem to work fine but how do i finish the installtion off? Am i supposed to use the Install command with a certain switch? Thanks in advance

Hello there, this may not be very helpful, but I used to use SuSE, when I upgraded to 9.1 installed python but it did not work properly. I am thinking that maybe it's suse 9.1 that does not work with python, but that's just me. My solution? changed to gentoo

no it aught to work if the python command is on your path
which python
if it return a path you should be good to go
/usr/local/bin would be the default
i don't even thing python really has anything other than optional dependancies ?????
you can try the configure switch
and see if that helps
otherwise just figure python needs to be patched to work on your settup and get a python binary instead
