patchelf: not an ELF executable error

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description

Thanks for this project!

When I am trying to make wheels for MacOS, I always get an error in patchelf,

$ conda press --subdir osx-64 --skip-python --fatten 'scikit-image=0.15.0=py37*'

the actual error is,

and otherwise patchelf looks fine

Thanks for the explanation! Closing a not a bug then.

Opened a separate issue to discuss if making wheels on a different platform than the target one could be a possibility one day…

scopatzcommented, Oct 2, 2019

That is… unexpected. I think that is a short term thing because we are not yet stripping binaries for Windows packages (mostly because I don’t know how). Once that is added, I wouldn’t expect it to work on Linux or Mac anymore 😉
