PYODBC face smash
Just had a hell of a time installing pyodbc on AWS ECS Linux AMI. And since I think I smashed it… here’s what i did.

(env) $ cd ~/src (env) $ curl -O -L https://github.com/mkleehammer/pyodbc/archive/4.0.26.tar.gz (env) $ tar xvzf 4.0.26.tar.gz (env) $ cd pyodbc-4.0.25 (env) $ python setup.py build (env) $ python setup.py install
not there… one more error.

After trying a few try’s, I needed to knwo not just my virtural environment directory but also where my
dist-packages. Which ended up being
Any now give
python setup.py install a go.
And we’re good to go.
