So, looks like you're trying to install the package on Windows. Here's an
excerpt from the archives (from Matt Knox, the codeveloper of TimeSeries):
cygwin works pretty seamlessly on windows with python 2.5, so I'd recommend
that approach. It doesn't require any special witchcraft that used to be
needed for compiling extensions on windows with earlier versions of python.
Here are some good general instructions for compiling extensions with cygwin
and python 2.5: http://boodebr.org/main/python/build-windows-extensions
Once you've followed the setup steps there, just open the cygwin shell and you
can do "python setup.py build_ext -i" to build the extension in place in that
same directory. Or I *believe* "python setup.py install" will compile the
extension and install it in your site-packages directory if memory serves me
correctly... but I haven't tried that in a while and don't have the necessary
stuff setup on my pc here to test. You can even create a nice binary installer
by doing "python setup.py bdist_wininst" if you want to pass it around to your
friends and family :)
I remember following this method when I had to install the package on my boss'
computer (a Windows machine), and that did work seamlessly indeed when you
have Python 2.5. Let us know how it goes.
