Ok, here goes ;-)
First of all, when installing on windows-x86 using msvc7.1 and
python-2.5, the build of numpy crashes because it was looking for
python25.lib and was looking in the lib directory of the python
installation. However, I compiled python-2.5 using the solution-file
that comes with it and this one generated the python25.lib file in the
pcbuild subdirectory (and does not copy it to the lib directory). After
copying it manually, the build worked.
However when trying to use vendor specific libraries, I run into
trouble. First of all, on linux-x86 I think I have set it up right but
how do I verify this? I have the same problem as mentioned in:
I also found numpy.__config__.show() but this does not show any tuned
lapack library although I had one in my site.cfg. Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance,
