How to install python packages nympy and pylab on linux without root permissions?
Posted on 2011-10-14
I am a Python newbie, who need to prepare the python framework to run a python program on a linux machine on which I don't have root permissions. The program is known to work on python 2.6. The system python version in /user/bin/python is older (2.4).
So I have downloaded and built python 2.6 from source and installed it in /home/web/tools/ where I have permissions:
configure --prefix=/home/web/tools; make; make install
Now, the problem is that the python program depends on (imports) the numpy and pylab packages (and whatever they may depend on as well). How to do this in a clean and standard way without root permissions?
