Installation Tips for Anaconda Python
I've managed to get LSL 1.1.1 to install in Continuum Analytics Anaconda Python distribution. The biggest problem I ran into was finding the right Python modules to make everything work.
ATLAS is not included with the Anaconda installation by default but it can be easily installed via:
conda install -c anaconda atlas=3.8.4
Unlike ATLAS, various Python modules are best installed through pip so that the right version can be built. Some of the pip installs work by default while others require using a different version than the default.
The GDBM module can be installed through conda via:
conda install python-gdbm
The default version of PyFITS seems ok:
pip install -i https://pypi.anaconda.org/pypi/simple pyfits
I had to go back a release on PyEphem to 188.8.131.52 to get the source to download:
pip install -i https://pypi.anaconda.org/pypi/simple pyephem==184.108.40.206
I had to go back to version 1.1.1 of AIPY to find a working version. I'm not sure why this is:
pip install -i https://pypi.anaconda.org/pypi/simple aipy==1.1.1
