I am following the hello demo to create python bindings using sip. I have installed PyQt5-5.15.4, sip-6.0.3 as below

Requirement already satisfied: toml in /usr/local/lib/python3.9/site-packages (from sip) (0.10.2)

Requirement already satisfied: pyparsing>=2.0.2 in /usr/local/lib/python3.9/site-packages (from packaging->sip) (2.4.7)

Installing collected packages: sip, PyQt5

Successfully installed PyQt5-5.15.4 sip-6.0.3

I also wrote the hello.sip file as below

%Module(name=hello, language="C")
%Import QtCore/QtCoremod.sip
class Hello : QLabel {
#include <hello.h>

Then when I run sip-install it throws me the below error .

VVVV:sip XXXXXX$ sip-install

These bindings will be built: hello.

Generating the hello bindings...

sip-install: Unable to find file "QtCore/QtCoremod.sip"

But I verified the file exists in the path
usr⁩ ▸ ⁨local⁩ ▸ ⁨lib⁩ ▸ ⁨python3.9⁩ ▸ ⁨site-packages⁩ ▸ ⁨PyQt5⁩ ▸ ⁨bindings⁩ ▸ ⁨QtCore⁩

So how do I point to that bindings folder. I tried exporting that Path in my bash_profile. But it did not help.

I will really appreciate if anyone can please help me out
Thank You,
