I'm trying to install numpy on my mac running 10.7.5

I did the following command

sudo /usr/local/bin/python /usr/local/bin/pip install numpy

and the error is something related with ld: library not found for -lcrt1.10.6.o Here is the complete output:

sudo /usr/local/bin/python /usr/local/bin/pip install numpy

none of the ides there actually worked – otmezger Mar 20 '13 at 13:37

I finally found the way to make this work... more with try and error than really understanding...

This did the trick:

cd /usr/lib
sudo ln -s /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.7.sdk/usr/lib/crt1.10.6.o 

Now I can install numpy with

sudo pip install numpy

I also needed to link a number of other libraries (like 5 in total)... very strange it wasn't looking in the right folder... maybe because it was on os x 10.7 and not 10.8? – otmezger Mar 21 '13 at 19:31
