I'm going to post my solution, because it's a really easy general
solution to these installation problems, and it isn't mentioned on the
I downloaded and built sage from source. All it requires is a c/c++ compiler.
This took about 3 hours.
This gives me a totally self-contained local python installation with
scipy in it.
It also has ipython, easy_install, and all that other nice stuff in
the bin directory.
When I log on, I go to the sage directory and type in the command
This sets all the shell variables so the executables in the sage bin
directory becomes default, so I just have to type 'ipython' and I've
got my sage ipython.
