Non-Panda question: how to find on linux?

Not really a Panda question, but: does anyone know how to get hte file (eg on linux?

I tried building a couple of versions of Python but couldnt see this anywhere. The $PREFIX/lib/python2.x directory just seems to contain .py files?

Theres a libpython2x.a file in the Python distribution, but this is a statically linked library, and also it doesnt seem to work awfully well: errors about fork not found etc.

What am I missing?


I did a “find” looking for libpython* and it didn’t find anything at all.

Then, I looked here: ldd /usr/bin/python => /lib/tls/ (0x00af8000) => /lib/ (0x00933000) => /lib/ (0x00aa5000) => /lib/tls/ (0x0090e000) => /lib/tls/ (0x007f0000)
/lib/ => /lib/ (0x007d7000)

It appears that there is no libpython22, at least not in the way that python was compiled under fedora core 2.
