Ok, this is a quicky i found here.
I use bdist_rpm when building python modules, because I like them to be neatly installed as rpms, but it normally breaks, puking over not packaged pyo files.
Just put this:
in the project’s setup.cfg, or perhaps better yet, in
~/.pydistutils.cfg or in
This will then always set
--optimize=1 when install is invoked. This way bdist_rpm will not break (hopefully). Or at least not on pyo files. Tried it with the Skype4Py package, it worked like a charm.
