Building for the Splunk Platform

Help installing Numpy!

Hi,

I might need to post this in a Python community but thought I'd start here since I've done this on other servers and haven't had problems. So I'm trying to install setuptools and Numpy for Splunk's OOB Python (version 2.7.5). But I keep running into problems (like "no module named ctypes" even though I have ctypes via a "yum" installation). And this is only one of the problems I've ran into. Another big one was "Python.h couldn't be compiled". Anyway, bottom line is I just need to install Numpy so I can use it for a search command (that uses python algorithm that depends on the Numpy module).

If anyone has ever successfully done this, please help!

By the way, I don't understand why Numpy wouldn't be bundled with Splunk's OOB Python. Numpy is popular and powerful for analytics. Isn't Splunk's advantage over other logging vendors powerful analytics??

Figured it out...

1) Build and install Python2.7.5 (Redhat's current OOB Python version is 2.6)
After downloading & unzipping,
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

2) Install EPEL repo using RPM command
3) $ yum install python-pip
OR $ yum install python-pip
4) $ pip install numpy --upgrade

Then everything is in place.. however, I still think the Numpy module should come OOB with Splunk.
