numpy build error on Solaris, No module named _md5
by Gong, Shawn (Contractor)
I tried to build numpy 1.2.1 on Solaris 9 with gcc 3.4.6
when I typed "python setup.py build", I got error from hashlib.py
File "/home/sgong/dev181/dist/lib/python2.5/hashlib.py", line 133, in
md5 = __get_builtin_constructor('md5')
File "/home/sgong/dev181/dist/lib/python2.5/hashlib.py", line 60, in
ImportError: No module named _md5
I then tried python 2.6.1 instead of 2.5.2, but got the same error.
I did not get the error while building on Linux. But I performed steps
1) copy *.a Atlas libraries to my local_install/atlas/
2) ranlib *.a
3) created a site.cfg
Do I need to do the same on Solaris?
Any help is appreciated.
