I have noticed an interesting difference when installing Numeric-20.3
against python-2.1 vs. python-2.2.
When installing against python-2.1, setup trys to write to
But when installing against python-2.2, this doesn't happen.
Note: this question came up because I am making an ebuild (basically a
compile and install script) for Gentoo linux, http://www.gentoo.org.
The attempted write to install_headers.pyc with python-2.1 violates
Gentoo's sandboxed build environment causing the merge to fail. If you
are interested see
Just curious if there is a known explanation for this. The simple fix
on my end, is to set the dependency >=python-2.2.
Thanks for the great program!
