Dr. Moritz,

Travis Oliphant is right, the current version of SciPy from CVS will
overwrite ("upgrade") an installed Numeric with Numeric 20.1.1.

We are currently discussing alternative strategies of packaging Numeric with
SciPy while still retaining the Numeric that may be already installed.

We hope to have a solution to the Numeric problem out and updated on the CVS
within the next day or so.

If you'd like to compile fftw on linux, the following commands *should* work
from the fftw directory...
(they haven't really been checked, though)

#These first three lines are necessary to build double-precision libraries

./configure --enable-threads
make
make install


#Now single precision libraries...

make clean
./configure --enable-threads --enable-float --enable-type-prefix
make
make install

<From Travis Oliphant>

If you want to build the interface to the fftw libraries you need to have
the
fftw libraries previously installed (or you can change the line in setup.py
to build_fftw=0)

We were having trouble making Numeric a subpackage of scipy so I think the
installation will currently upgrade your copy of Numeric as well.
