Hi,
I do not have any errors with Fedora 13 Python 2.6 version.

This bug still prevents building scipy under Python 2.7:
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/ticket/1180

There are four tests that fail under Python2.4 with my Linux 64bit
system. The first is due to 'functools' which is new in Python 2.5
(http://docs.python.org/library/functools.html) and the rest are from
the same problem. I have not had the time yet to look further at
these. Also, I have to update by SVN to see what Python 2.4 issues are
present.


My Unladen Swallow 2009Q4 build (python 2.6) crashes during tests:
test_singular (test_linsolve.TestLinsolve) ... ok
test_twodiags (test_linsolve.TestLinsolve) ... ok
test_linsolve.TestSplu.test_lu_refcount ... ok
test_linsolve.TestSplu.test_spilu_nnz0 ... Fatal Python error: UNREF
invalid object
Aborted

I have Unladen Swallow out of curiosity so I don't really care about
this problem. Since the standard Python 2.6 runs it may just be that
version Unladen Swallow.

Python 2.5 is missing because it not built correctly  (I get one error
due to missing _md5 modules as a result).
