I copied the files but that just moves the problem. So that patch is
I get the same errors on Fedora 15 supplied Python3.2 for numpy 1.6.0
and using git from 'https://github.com/rgommers/numpy.git'. Numpy is
getting Fedora supplied Atlas (1.5.1 does not).
It appears that there is a misunderstanding of the PEP because 'SO' and
'SOABI' do exactly what the PEP says on my systems:
> >> from distutils import sysconfig sysconfig.get_config_var('SO')
> >> sysconfig.get_config_var('SOABI')
Consequently, the name, 'multiarray.pyd', created within numpy is invalid.
Looking the code, I see this line which makes no sense given that the
second part is true under Linux:
if (not is_python_ext) and 'SOABI' in distutils.sysconfig.get_config_vars():
So I think the 'get_shared_lib_extension' function is wrong and probably
-------------- next part --------------
