OE/Bitbake python-numpy_1.6.0.bb error, ATLAS file format not recognized

Hi,

I have been trying to build an image that requires python-numpy, but
this package has had some trouble compiling. I don't know enough about
the process to effectively debug the problem. I spent a couple hours
with google but I couldnt get it solved.

When I attempt to compile with 'bitbake -f -c compile python-numpy' it
always throws the error at the bottom of this post. Basically it just
can't read the format of some of the ATLAS files. Has anyone else seen
any problems with both numpy and atlas? I also tried python-
numpy_1.4.1 and python-numpy_1.1.1 with the same problem.

I appreciate any help I can get with the problem.

Thanks,
Bob

Dear Bob,

please point out next time that you created a new recipe for this
version and that it is not from OpenEmbedded repository.

When I attempt to compile with 'bitbake -f -c compile python-numpy' it

python-numpy_1.4.1 builds fine for me using `angstrom-2010.x` for
`MACHINE = "beagleboard"`.

I appreciate any help I can get with the problem.

Please subscribe to openembedded-devel [1], adhere to the netiquette [2]
and submit your recipe as a patch [3] (maybe tagged as [RFC] – read for
corrections). The OE developers will help you there. After that please
respond to my message with a link to your message in the OE archive.

Thanks,

Paul

I apologize for the ambiguity. I created the python-numpy1.6.0.bb
package in an effort to fix the problem I was having with the python-
numpy-1.4.1.bb package, I forgot that 1.6.0 wasn't originally in the
OE repository. Their contents are the same with the exception of the
checksums and the commented out line in the SRC_URI field, so consider
this thread to be about 1.4.1 rather than 1.6.0. I changed the
filename to update the ${PV} variable and download the most up to date
version of numpy.

As it stands, 'bitbake -f -c compile python-numpy_1.4.1.bb' has the
same error as I listed in my first post. My local.conf settings are
the same as you listed, i.e.:

local.conf:

BFILES = "${HOME}/oe/openembedded/recipes/*/*.bb"
DISTRO = "angstrom-2010.x"
MACHINE = "beagleboard"
IMAGE_FSTYPES = "jffs2 tar"
...

Eventually I do plan to submit a patch regarding python-numpy_1.6.0,
however at the current moment I am more concerned with getting it to
work.

Thanks for your help,
Bob

Dear Bob,

Alright, will do. Sorry, I am a bit of a newbie with open development,
thanks for the tip on protocol. I post over there.
