It has occurred to me to that I should check to ensure that Pandas plays nicely with my previous setup (see here). I’d also like to install PyTables, but that doesn’t work with HDF5 1.10.0 at this time. Hopefully that will change soon.
On occasion, I have to set up a machine or VM to use parallel h5py, sometimes with a particular version or snapshot of HDF5. Unfortunately, package managers always seem to make a mess of the MPI-HDF5-Python trifecta, even for more vanilla installs, so I’ve put this blog post together to remind myself of the steps I need to take to get everything working.
