Hi FSL Folks,


I am trying to run this command and getting the error below. Any suggestions?


I am explicitly trying to avoid the package being installed in /etc/local or some global system folder.


Also, are the precompiled binaries no longer offered for v. 5.0.10?







python -d /gpfs/project/fas/n3/software/fsl-5.0.10/ -V 5.0.10 -p -D


{'d_dir': '/gpfs/project/fas/n3/software/fsl-5.0.10/', 'test_csv': None, 'verbose': True, 'get_source': None, 'checksum_type': 'sha256', 'checksum': None, 'quiet': None, 'env_all': None, 'update': None, 'skipchecksum': None, 'get_feeds': None, 'requestversion': '5.0.10', 'download': None, 'list_versions': None, 'test_installer': None, 'archive': None, 'env_only': None, 'skip_env': True}
