Cannot build cython and numpy while using python-2.7 cartridge
Last modified: 2015-05-14 19:12:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Cannot build cython or numpy for python 2.7 cartridge. Cannot find the development headers/libraries.
But if I create an account, set up a virtual environment for it that's similar to the cartridge install, then I can build both cython and numpy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a python 2.7 application
2. edit setup.py and add cython
3. commit & push
It may be worth adding Cython (apache license) and NumPy RPMs. We add NumPY already to python 2.6, just not the 2.7 or 3.3 SCL.
Turns out the problem doesn't affect cython, just numpy. Numpy will be provided via RPM for python-2.7 shortly so setting this low severity.
I still want to see why the build environment is different.
