Install reports Python 3 is needed,
$ python setup.py install Currently, rpy2 2.4.0dev is only supporting Python 3.
but when using Python3, an encoding error is triggered
$ python3 setup.py install [...] File "setup.py", line 121, in finalize_options rversion = get_rversion(r_home) File "setup.py", line 177, in get_rversion if rversion.startswith(b"WARNING"): TypeError: startswith first arg must be str or a tuple of str, not bytes
I would like to work on
#161. But when running the tests, my system-wide rpy2 package is loaded. Is there a workaround for running the tests without installing ?
