Is that what I did?
I looked at the www.scipy.org front page. It says
"*This site does not reflect the rapid growth of scipy that has taken
place while a new core scipy array object has been built to replace
Numeric.* This link <http://numeric.scipy.org> provides more information
on where to get the new scipy core.
A version of scipy that works on newcore is available for anyonymous
check out from a subversion repostitory at
Where "this link" points to sf.net. One can interpret this as: The
new SciPy Core is on sf.net. If you want a full version of SciPy that
works with it, then get that part from svn.../scipy/trunk.
So are you saying that sf.net and svn both contain only SciPy Core (but
different versions)? No, that can't be right. When I installed *only*
the svn version, there was no scipy.special. When I subsequently
installed the sf.net version, scipy.special was installed.
But wait ... maybe I should install the older sf.net first, then the
newer svn version afterwards...let me try that.
No. Still crashes, with the words "Importing cluster to scipy". I must
have something else wrong, a mising prereq or something.
Recall that the svn version works fine all by itself. Let me try the
sf.net version *only* (wiping site-packages and starting clean)....
Hmmm, in this case "import scipy" reports "no module scipy". scipy is in
the file system. There is no __init__.py in the scipy directory.
I'm using the Windows installer scipy-0.4.3.win32-py2.3.exe
Another thought ... when I say "svn" I mean
*http://svn.scipy.org/svn/scipy/trunk . Is there another component
available via svn that I'm not aware of?
thanks for your patience,
