PYTHON on LINUX

Posted by cloughie (cloughie), 1 November 2007
I've been told that there's a problem with porting Python programs to Linux, at least those that contain calls to ODBC.
Well, I've just ftp'd some over and, sure enough, I get an error to do with ODBC:
import odbc
ImportError: No module named odbc


Is there something else I should be using when porting to Linux ?


Thanks

ODBC is very much more Windows than Linux, I'm afraid so, yes, much easier under windows.  But have a look at these links as starter points:
