is there any documented procedure to do this ?
i am trying to install numpy on an openwrt 23 installation using pip install but the embedded system crashes during the build for lack of resources. so i need of cross-compiling it.
i have read some guides on how to do that on ubuntu but could not make it. technically it should work like:
- on my ubutu install python
- download numpy package .tar file and untar. cd inside it
- download python headers for openwrt target architecture
- python setup.py build_ext --include ..python_headers_folder..
needless to say, that does not work ...
any tips ?
thanks for sharing, i am not C expert but i will try to have a look there and report about my experience ... so bad that there is no official documentation on how to do this. i believe openwrt has a very steep learning curve and such kind of guides might boost adoption significantly.
looking at your linked post it seems i was way off with my research
@frollic specifically i am looking to install the numpy as well as the regex packages on openwrt so i will start with the simplest one: https://github.com/mrabarnett/mrab-regex/tree/hg/regex_3
looking at their repo it seems they have no Makefile, so i might need to be creative ...
