Sorry if this has been answered before: I looked through the archives but couldn't find exactly the same problem I'm encountering.
I'm trying to put together a distribution that has a C extension as well as a python module that wraps the extension, giving it a friendlier interface (call the first _spam.so and the second spam.py: spam.py imports _spam.so). I've gotten the setup.py script to correctly compile and install, but when I try to make a binary distribution (bdist or bdist_rpm), it doesn't include the C extension, just the python module. This is such a basic thing (and common), I must be missing something really basic. I'd appreciate any help. My setup.py is included below. I'm using python 2.2.2.
#!/usr/bin/env python from distutils.core import setup, Extension from distutils.sysconfig import get_python_inc from distutils.sysconfig import get_python_lib import os
num_lib_dir = os.path.join(get_python_lib(plat_specific=1), "Numeric") num_inc_dir = os.path.join(get_python_inc(plat_specific=1), "Numeric")
ext = Extension("_spam", ["spam.c"], include_dirs=[num_inc_dir], library_dirs=[num_lib_dir])
setup(name="spam", version="0.5", description="Spam Library", author="Chris Burns", ext_modules=[ext], py_modules=['spam'])
