    Cross compile python packages for IoT devKit

    X_Y

      Hi, I need to install a few python packages(cython, scipy, sklearn, etc. ) on my Galileo with IoT devKit to run my computer vision scripts. However the installation process typically takes hours, and easy_install cython failed half way due to "Out of memory".

       

      So I'm considering cross compiling those packages on my computer for the IoT devKit. The only thing I can find is Galileo cross compiler toolchainGalileo Software Downloads. As I understand the default linux image is different from the IoT Devkit since the former is running uclibc and the later eglibc, so I'm afraid using the wrong toolchain wouldn't work.

       

      Does anybody has experience about cross compiling for IoT devKit? Would be nice to get some instructions!
