Dear Andreas- Thanks for your patience.
"...Further, which of those packages actually requires setuptools? A
quick look at their repositories suggests none of them do."
I can only state that using yum install for the libraries mentioned
previously after installing distribute states the need for setuptools
installation. Why, if as you mention each independently does not, I
have no idea.
"> Lastly, the build log you posted a while ago didn't show any
issues--what do you need help resolving"
After an install of Pycuda a la the build log you mentioned, any
attempt at running tests indicates missing python packages and a fail.
This didn't happen in 0.93 and trying to re-install 0.93 at this
juncture also fails.
Will attempt another clean re-installation of everything and report back asap.
