aliceO2 compilation failed, Python-modules-list

On a CentOS7 computer, I’m not able to compile aliceO2 anymore. The git pull were done for both O2 and alidist directories. I have updated my python to 3.6.08 without success.

The compilation failed here:

Using cached build for Python-modules-list

i have forgotten to say that the log file is empty!

Hi @manso, try updating aliBuild! The latest version (v1.16.1) works; other people have reported problems on older versions.

On CentOS 7, you can do this with a yum update, assuming you installed alibuild as described here:
