All,

Mac OS X 10.4.11 PPC.

Installed python from this:

http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.5.1/python-2.5.1-macosx.dmg

Installation finishes with "There were errors installing the
software. Please try installing again." Installing again makes no
difference, but Python appears to be running:

scipy-0.6.0 $ python
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54869, Apr 18 2007, 22:08:04)
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5367)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>>


Downloaded scipy from: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/scipy/ 
scipy-0.6.0.tar.gz?download

After unpacking and changing directories, simply did this:

scipy-0.6.0 $ sudo python setup.py install

Seem to finish OK. Lots of "Warnings.' But testing according to  
INSTALL.txt resulted in:

scipy-0.6.0 $ python
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54869, Apr 18 2007, 22:08:04)
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5367)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> import scipy
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
   File "scipy/__init__.py", line 54, in <module>
     from __config__ import show as show_config
ImportError: No module named __config__


Any ideas or advice?

Thanks

David.
