Hi,

I am trying to install a software called Cantera which uses numpy. When I
run the make command, during the installation it gives me the following
error:

*/bin/rm -f _build
(CXX="g++"; export CXX; CC="g++"; export CC; CFLAGS="-O3 -Wall     -fPIC";
export CFLAGS; PURIFY=""; export PURIFY; /usr/bin/python2 setup.py build)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 3, in ?
    from distutils.core import setup, Extension
  File
"/nfs/carv/d1/people/pradeep/src/numpy-1.3.0/numpy/distutils/__init__.py",
line 6, in ?
    import ccompiler
  File
"/nfs/carv/d1/people/pradeep/src/numpy-1.3.0/numpy/distutils/ccompiler.py",
line 7, in ?
    from distutils import ccompiler
ImportError: cannot import name ccompiler
make[1]: *** [_build] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
`/nfs/carv/d1/people/pradeep/cantera/Cantera/python'
make: *** [python] Error 2*

My numpy is stored in the following directory
*/nfs/carv/d1/people/pradeep/src/numpy-1.3.0/

*I am running Linux (Fedora). When I do a sys.path in command line Python,
the output is:
*['', '/nfs/carv/d1/people/pradeep/src/numpy-1.3.0',
'/nfs/carv/d1/people/pradeep/src/numpy-1.3.0/numpy',

'/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/Numeric',
'/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0']
*
I have a lot of unwanted directories as I was trying out different things.
Any clues whats going wrong?

Thanks
