How to install pycppad on mac os X Leopard
(Hours it took to discover all this: 8ish. Frustration level: 9/10)
1) Install boost.
Download the file boost_1_40_0.tar.bz2 (or .zip or .tar.gz), extract it, enter the directory.
2) Compile boost.python with a flag to ensure a universal binary.
sudo ./bootstrap sudo ./bjam install --architecture=combined --with-python
3) Download the file pycppad-20090621.tar.gz, unzip it, enter the directory.
4) Make sure you have the wget utility installed (“port install wget” if you use macports)
5) Make the changes
#boost_python_lib_dir = '/usr/lib' boost_python_lib_dir = '/usr/local/lib' # #boost_python_lib_name = 'libboost_python.so' boost_python_lib_name = 'libboost_python.a' # #cppad_version = '20090303.0' cppad_version = '20090915' # #m = re.search('lib([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)[.]so', boost_python_lib_name) m = re.search('lib([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)[.]a', boost_python_lib_name) # cppad_extension_include_dirs.append( cppad_include_dir ) # DO NOT COMMENT OUT cppad_extension_include_dirs.append( '/Users/Justin/boost_1_40_0')
The last line will be different unless you so fortunate as to also be named Justin.
6) install pycppad
./setup.py build_ext --inplace ./sudo python setup.py install --prefix=/usr/local
7) copy the files from where this installs them to where they actually need to be
cp -r /usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/pycppad /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/lib/python2.6/site-packages/
This is also likely to be different for you. If pycppad only works in the pycppad directory, it is likely you need to change this step.
7) test pycppad
Absolutely everything went wrong when I tried to do this.
