I have a Python virtualenv set up with pyenv-virtualenv. I installed the R statistical software, and now I need to install the rpy2 package to allow communication between Python and R.
Both Python v2.7.12 and R version 3.3.1 (2016-06-21) are installed.
Attempting to install
pip install rpy2
/usr/bin/ld: no se puede encontrar -llzma
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1
Command "/home/gabriel/.pyenv/versions/2.7.12/envs/test-env/bin/python2.7 -u -c "import setuptools, tokenize;__file__='/tmp/pip-build-b7O2v3/rpy2/setup.py';exec(compile(getattr(tokenize, 'open', open)(__file__).read().replace('\r\n', '\n'), __file__, 'exec'))" install --record /tmp/pip-4SXyxe-record/install-record.txt --single-version-externally-managed --compile --install-headers /home/gabriel/.pyenv/versions/2.7.12/envs/asteca-env/include/site/python2.7/rpy2" failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-b7O2v3/rpy2/
no se puede encontrar -llzma
can't find -llzma
I would finally install the package successfully.
The issue was that I had installed the
python-dev library after the
virtualenv was created. This caused the installation of the
rpy2 package to fail.
The solution was to uninstall the
virtualenv and create again from scratch.
