Binary many-linux wheels are now supported:
Specifically I would like to install the many linux wheel for scipy on Travis, using the trusty beta operating system. The wheels are listed here:
Collecting scipy Downloading scipy-0.17.1.tar.gz (12.4MB) 100% |████████████████████████████████| 12.4MB 100kB/s
Collecting scipy Downloading scipy-0.17.1-cp27-cp27mu-manylinux1_x86_64.whl (39.5MB) 100% |████████████████████████████████| 39.5MB 37kB/s
So, in order to fix this, I would like to know, how pip determines which wheel to download and install. And yes, I did update pip to version 8.1.2 which supports binary many linux wheels.
Specifically, I am not interested in alternative solutions, just answer the question, if you can.
You need pip 8.1 or later and a linux distribution that is based on glibc (and not musl libc as alpine linux for instance).
EDIT: the function
pip._internal.utils.compatibility_tags.get_supported() should return the list of supported platform tags in order. Pip prefers wheel tags that appear earlier in this list over tags that appear later.
Also may I kindly suggest you to use python 3.5 instead of 2.7 😉
