An initial implementation of this system worked OK, if slowly, with the httpd and python running on a Linux desktop (with the python script calling the digi-resident binary app with ssh calls).
Python doesn’t work well directly on the 4Mb flash/8Mb RAM ME 9210, though. For example:
/root # time python -c "print(\"hello\")" Could not find platform independent libraries Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to [:] 'import site' failed; use -v for traceback warning: Not importing directory '/usr/lib/python2.5/encodings': missing __init__.py hello real 35m 22.72s user 0m 0.33s sys 9m 3.13s /root #
(That was without any of the .pyc Python libraries, which have trouble fitting in the file system.)
Has anyone gotten Python to work with acceptable performance on the larger, 8Mb flash/16Mb RAM model of the ME 9210?
