What Kevin from IBM had me do was include system packages in my virtual environment. You do that when you create your venv.

virtualenv /my/venv/here --system-site-packages

Subject: [IBMiOSS] ibm-db and itoolkit into venv

Hi All,

I'm running python 3.6.6 (on the IBMi) and have just set up a venv version which seems to be working fine.

I recall Justin saying he thought that currently there was no easy way to pip install:


Is this still the case?

If these cannot be pip installed - are there any instructions anyone could point me to that are complete and exact enough for a newbie to follow?

thanks kindly,
