Python 2.4 or higher, SWIG 1.3 or higher, GNU make
After downloading, you can compile the pyUnbound library by doing:
> tar -xzf unbound-x.x.x-py.tar.gz > cd unbound-x.x.x > ./configure --with-pyunbound > make
You may want to –with-pythonmodule as well if you want to use python as a module in the resolver.
You need GNU make to compile sources; SWIG and Python devel libraries to compile extension module.
If the compilation is successfull, you can test the python LDNS extension module by:
> cd contrib/python > make testenv > ./dns-lookup.py
You may want to make install in the main directory since make testenv is for debugging. In contrib/examples you can find simple applications written in Python using the Unbound extension.
