Python

Install Pip

Establish an internet connection for the Conduit and then issue these commands:

$ opkg update
...
$ opkg install python-pip
...
$ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pypa/setuptools/bootstrap-2.x/ez_setup.py --no-check-certificate
...
$ python ez_setup.py

Note: These steps only work for pure python packages and AEP 1.5x/mLinux 4.0x or higher due to a bug in older versions of python and ez_setup.py regarding redirects. For earlier versions of firmware from AEP 1.4x/mLinux 3.x, call ez_setup.py with a –download-base argument as a workaround. The Conduit doesn’t have a compiler. If you need python modules requiring compiled C/C++ code (binary files), use OPKG on mLinux to install the python libraries instead of PIP (i.e. to build them on another computer). Any feeds used should reflect the appropriate version /feeds/<mlinux-version>/. If you have specific questions or issues with third-party software, libraries, or other code not generated by Multitech, please contact the provider directly.
