Installing Sphinx inside the UV-CDAT (alpha)

Dear All,

I have face a problem that I can not install sphinx inside uv-cdat (alpha) python path.

Also I can not use easy_install of uv-cdat python, since it has some zlib library missing.

I hope uv-cdat team will fix all these issues soon.

Mean while we should learn how to use sphinx for our uv-cdat python modules.

Once we installed the sphinx correctly inside our system python,
then do the following steps.

* we can not install sphinx successfully inside the uv-cdat due to zlib version problem of uv-cdat.

Here is short route to work out the sphinx for uv-cdat modules….

Below is uv-cdat installed path in my machine.




Add the above two sys.path.append lines in the following three system executable python scripts.

$ sudo gedit /usr/local/bin/sphinx-quickstart

$ sudo gedit /usr/local/bin/sphinx-autogen

$ sudo gedit /usr/local/bin/sphinx-build

Thats it.

Here after from the normal system executables sphinx-quickstart, sphinx-autogen, sphinx-build we can generate the sphinx index.html
of our uv-cdat (diagnosis) py modules.

We have to understand that we didnt installed sphinx inside the uv-cdat python path.

We just added the uv-cdat packages path into the system python path, while the above three executables running.
