     There will always be bugs, but numpy 1.3 is a stable release, unless
     there is a bug that affects what your doing right now?
     
     If you find a bug that prevents you from from your specific work,
     better report that bug,
     if you haven't already.

     I see an *absolute* import, maybe easy_install is different from where
     ubuntu expects numpy to be installed?
     
     i think the folder distutils is specific for ubuntu ?
     
     
     try and remove manually the egg
     in /usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/numpy-1.5.1-py2.6-linux-x86_64.egg
     
     then do
     
     $ sudo easy_install -U numpy
     
     -U is for update, maybe you have to run without -U first?

     Good question.. ?
     
     easy_install should be distribution non-specific(as far as i know)
     
     see also this thread, even though its old. (late 2009)
     http://old.nabble.com/numpy-1.3.0-eggs-with-python2.6-seem-broken-on-osx,-and-linux-td26551531.html     
     so maybe then download only the egg(with easy_install), then enter the
     folder and do sudo python2.6 setup.py install
     Dont you have python 2.7 also on ubuntu?
     
     
     regards mic

   Thanks for all those instructions, however, personally I don't need
   them, I have sucseeded with my own manipulations and even if I
   wouldn't I always can build numpy/scipy from sources.
   I mere care for quality and easibility of numpy installation for
   ordinary non-skilled users. They may just try installation, see that
   it's buggy and move away to use another soft.
