[IPython-dev] libreadline.so.5 missing in Canopy's IPython?
Fri Feb 21 11:35:56 CST 2014
I'm (partially) using IPython also out of Enthought's Canopy environment. Hopefully someone on this list is familiar with that.
I just upgraded to version 22.214.171.1245 only to find that I could not invoke the simple 'non-notebook' IPython shell anymore without error because of a missing libreadline.so.5.
I then realized, that indeed appdata/canopy-126.96.36.1995.rh5-x86_64/lib/ is lacking libreadline.so.5 completely(?)
Also I realized that strangely/luckily appdata/canopy-188.8.131.521.rh5-x86_64/lib/ of the earlier version was not deleted during update(?)
Moreover the 'old' appdata/canopy-184.108.40.2061.rh5-x86_64/lib/ does contain libreadline.so.5
After putting links to the 'old' libreadline.so.5 into the new appdata/canopy-220.127.116.115.rh5-x86_64/lib/ the 'non-notebook' IPython shell starts again without error.
Most likely all of this is not supposed to be. Does anyone have/had similar experiences? What am I missing here?
