You can. In fact, Numeric builds out of the box with
though the package name comes out to be named 'Numeric', but that should not
be a problem, since the setup.cfg file reads:
which means that the python-numeric dependency should be satisfied.
If you really need to have the rpm be named python-numeric, this can be done
by either writing out the spec file and fixing it by hand via:
python setup.py bdist_rpm --spec-only
or by changing the 'name' flag in the setup.py by hand to read 'python-config'
instead of 'Numeric'. If changing this name for rpms is a common need, we
can patch up setup.py to take an optional argument.
