[Numpy-discussion] Update on using scons to build numpy
Sat Jan 12 02:53:45 CST 2008
A quick email to give an update on my work to build numpy with
scons. I've finished a few days ago to make my former work a separate
package from numpy: it was more work than I expected because of
bootstrapping issues, but I can now build numpy again with the new
package on Linux.
The separate package is called numscons, and is developed using
launchpad for bug tracking and source code repository:
You can find tarballs for releases there (you want the last one, that is
0.2.2 at that time):
And you need to use the branch build_with_scons to build numpy with
numscons (the way to build numpy with scons is as before: you use
setupscons.py instead of setup.py).
I am now working on cleaning some things in the code (in particular, all
the changes I had to do to scons itself are now being worked on to be
integrated upstream, so that upstream scons will be used instead of our
own cannibalized copy).
