The current numpy downloaded from http://github.com/cournape/numpy.git
installed. I get an error which tells me to install
python-dev|python-devel
I am running ubuntu 10. which comes with py 2.6.5 installed. I was not
sure the best way to to get python-dev installed as I am not really
sure what it is.

File "numpy/core/setup.py", line 255, in check_types
    "Cannot compiler 'Python.h'. Perhaps you need to "\
SystemError: Cannot compiler 'Python.h'. Perhaps you need to install
python-dev|python-devel.

Seems to me this is the same error I got when trying to install on my
osx machine. Of course there is more.

Thanks
Vincent
