[IPython-user] dumb question on installing ipython1
Sat Oct 6 14:57:16 CDT 2007
This is a fairly dumb question, reflecting more my python ignorance
I'm having trouble installing ipython1 on opensuse 10.3 (just
released) on amd64 hardware. I svn'ed the most recent ipython1, and
">python setup.py install" gives an error (see below). My
site-packages is in /usr/lib64/python/site-packages, but setup.py
wants to use /usr/local/lib64/.... I tried changing this via
--install-dir, which gives an error, and --prefix, which gives a
mangled dirname still w/ /usr/local/lib64 at the front.
How can I fix this?
Is something setup wrong in distutils (not that I'd know exactly how
to fix that)? I noticed numpy has a distutils subdir with
/usr/local/lib64/ in some file, according to grep.
> python setup.py install

choose a different installation directory (using the -d or --install-dir
