pip install and python setup.py behave differently

Tag: pip Author: chenjuanjiajie Date: 2013-04-16

I have a setup.py that compiles some c code using gcc. It then installs the binary.

When using python setup.py install, the binary runs just fine.

When using pip install for this package, I get

/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.0' not found

Does anyone know why this is the case and how I can work around this issue?
