I don't use SUSE, so I can't answer specifically, but basically as long as
Python was built with readline support under suse, you shouldn't need anything
else at all to use ipython. If the up/down arrow keys work for you as
expected, you're all set.
As for your scipy problem, the gfortran message indicates you are using gcc4
(which replaced g77 with gfortran). I know in some platforms people have had
a hard time with gcc4, but I don't know enough specifics to say much that can
be useful (I'm still using gcc3.4/g77 or the Intel compilers).
