Hello:

Has anyone found a recipe for success installing scipy on 10.3? I  
notice that the scipy fink package hasn't yet been updated for 10.3.

My various attempts have ended in failure. Here's the furthest I've  
gotten using the latest CVS of scipy:

sudo python setup.py install
...
...
building 'scipy.fftpack.convolve' extension
gcc -L/sw/lib -bundle -flat_namespace -undefined suppress  
build/temp.darwin-7.2.0-PowerMacintosh-2.3/Lib/fftpack/src/convolve.o  
build/temp.darwin-7.2.0-PowerMacintosh-2.3/sw/lib/python2.3/site- 
packages/f2py2e/src/fortranobject.o  
build/temp.darwin-7.2.0-PowerMacintosh-2.3/build/temp.darwin-7.2.0-

-o build/lib.darwin-7.2.0-PowerMacintosh-2.3/scipy/fftpack/convolve.so
ld:  
build/temp.darwin-7.2.0-PowerMacintosh-2.3/build/temp.darwin-7.2.0- 
PowerMacintosh-2.3/convolvemodule.o has external relocation entries in  
non-writable section (__TEXT,__text) for symbols:
restFP
saveFP
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

Any ideas what's happening here? I'm running as sudo. I'm not sure what  
is meant by a 'non-writable section'. I've tried the 0.2.0alpha release  
as well but don't get as far.

Many thanks in advance for any guidance. Awfully sorry to be dumping my  
build problems on the list.

Tom
