Ticket #1096 (closed defect: worksforme)
SyntaxError on python2.5 with Firebird driver
|Reported by:||admackin@…||Owned by:||andrew|
AFAICT South targets Python 2.4 (presumably once Django 1.5 is released it will follow Django in no longer support 2.4 or 2.5). However in the Firebird driver, there is some syntax only available in python 2.6 and above.
(I'm using Jython for various reasons, so can only get 2.5 support at the moment)
Running setup.py install for south File "/var/django-sites/icaredemo/jython-venv/Lib/site-packages/south/db/firebird.py", line 288 except DatabaseError as e: ^ SyntaxError: mismatched input 'as' expecting COLON
Presumably this should be except DatabaseError as e: until support for python 2.5 is dropped..
