Adding Pyinotify to CentOS 5 X64
In order to get pyinotify working on CentOS 5 x64 a few workarounds need to take place.
(Thanks to Matthew Ife at ukFast for help with this)
First off you are going to need the python-ctypes RPM, available from DAG here: python-ctypes-1.0.0-2.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm
Once installed you are going to need the Fedora 8 python-inotify SOURCE rpm available from here: python-inotify-0.8.0-3.r.fc8.src.rpm
The easiest way I found to extract the required packages was using the following:
mkdir ./python-inotify cd ./python-inotify wget ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/archive.fedoraproject.org/fedora/linux/updates/8/SRPMS.newkey/python-inotify-0.8.0-3.r.fc8.src.rpm rpm2cpio ./python-inotify-0.8.0-3.r.fc8.src.rpm | cpio -idv tar -zxvf ./pyinotify-0.8.0r.tar.gz cd ./pyinotify ./setup.py install
