Now I have to figure out how I can just have a base image in the cloud compile include this so that the source can be tested on Onion,Inc's build machines and pushed for testing. That would greatly reduce compile and debug time.
Thanks - that looks like the best answer.. I have, however, since tried to cross compile python3 and had to start again.. :-/ So now I have a different problem that wasn't there before and I'm not doing anything different - I can't get python3 running as well as the normal version2.
I will post a different thread for that one. Then come back to your solution.. Thanks..
