Re: [Starcluster] URGENT: Old Starcluster 32-bit AMI needed
This archive was generated by
One quick comment about that AMI that Justin reminded me of: I did my own
installation and optimization of numpy and scipy, to get later versions than
were originally present in the starcluster AMI and the correct some problems
in the original optimization procedure. I put these installations in a
different place than the original, so as not to blow the original
installations away. If you want to use my installations (recommended I
think), you'll have to add the following to your PYTHONPATH:
Once you've done that, you should run the test suite, e.g:
>>> import numpy
You should get 1 known fail (K) and 11 skips (S).
If this is not what you get, make sure you[re using the right version of
numpy. My installation is version 1.3.0:
while the original installation is version 1.2.x (I think).
