> Thanks for the quick response. I could request, that zmq is installed from one of the repositories available through yum. However, I'm not sure whether this is a sustainable solution since the repositories are often so out of date. For example, the only ipython Version available is 0.10! I will proceed and request root access to my desktop box for testing. If I get everything working, I can try to request certain dependencies to be installed on the cluster. Would have been great if there was a possibility to install everything with user rights though.
It is possible to install everything with only user rights, it's just
a matter of how much work that will take. zmq is easy, you just need
libuuid (with headers) and libpgm. That would give you the notebook
and the parallel machinery. What will be a major pain to do is a user
build of a reasonably recent Qt with user rights, that's probably a
never-ending rabbit hole.
Though check Thomas' suggestion of zmq static, if that works you're
all set (regarding compiled deps, that is).
