The url is:

As a test of the default settings, I created a newuser, downloaded the
above file into newuser/, and:

tar -xjvf garnumpy-0.2.1.tbz2
cd garnumpy-0.2.1
cd platform/scipy
make install

It completed the build & lengthy test process w/o errors. I was very
pleasantly surprised that the default settings resulted in a successful
build. What a change from the painful manual process! David, thank you
very much for this contribution to the community. It promises to be a
very useful tool, especially for new users.

One small change needs to be made if you run Python2.5.

In startgarnumpy.sh, the line

PYTHONPATH=$GARNUMPYDIR/lib/python2.4/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH

needs to be changed to 

PYTHONPATH=$GARNUMPYDIR/lib/python2.5/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH

Then 

source startgarnumpy.sh

The system is a Core 2 Duo running 32-bit openSUSE 10.2 &
Python2.5. Next, I plan to experiment changing the defaults to match the
hardware better.
