Hello everyone,

I'm trying to install diffpy.srreal and I'm getting several errors that won't let me install it, such as:


Failed building wheel for diffpy.srreal
and
 src/extensions/srreal_converters.cpp:20:10: fatal error: boost/python/slice.hpp: No such file or directory
     #include <boost/python/slice.hpp>

I'm not entirely certain what I'm doing wrong, any advice anyone could give me would be a big help.

Thank you so much,
Greg

Hi Greg,

The easiest way of installing diffpy.srreal is to
use its Anaconda package:

conda install --channel=diffpy diffpy.srreal

If you need to build it from sources, please consult the README at
https://github.com/diffpy/diffpy.srreal in particular the Requirements
paragraph. The error you get happens when boost-python library is
either not installed or cannot be found by c++ compiler.

Hope this helps,

Pavol

Thank you Dr. Juhas,

Unfortunately I'm still having issues with the conda install, it does not seem to recognize that there is anything in that channel. I'm attaching the output.

I'm trying to do an install from source. I haven't had too much luck yet, but I will let you know if I need more help.

Thank you,
Greg

Hi Greg,

diffpy.srreal is not available for Windows, it only builds for
Linux, Mac or other UNIX-derived systems.

If you need to use it on Windows, I suggest to use the
windows subsystem for linux; see the following post for details
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/diffpy-users/SSdUn6HM25k/AudNwqKUBQAJ.

Hope this works,

Pavol

Thank you so much, I got it squared away. Sorry for bothering you with a pretty silly question.

Thank you,
Greg
