I recently built (using David Cournapeau's garnumpy) numpy and scipy
using ATLAS 3.7.33, gfortran, gcc 4.1.2, SUSE 10.2 (x86 kernel
184.108.40.206-34-default), and python 2.5:
Python 2.5 (r25:51908, Nov 27 2006, 19:14:46)
[GCC 4.1.2 20061115 (prerelease) (SUSE Linux)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import numpy
>>> import scipy
>>> print numpy.__version__
>>> print scipy.__version__
Ran 526 tests in 0.432s
Ran 1596 tests in 2.942s
There doesn't appear to be a problem with recent versions of the
software. In particular, ATLAS 3.7.33 does not cause an error.
Is there some reason for you to use such old software? (gcc 3.3.1 &
kernel 2.4.21)? What platform are you building for?
