Hello,

I have trouble installing Scipy on my Mac. I downloaded this:
scipy-0.10.1-py2.6-python.org-macosx10.3.dmg and clicked and tried to
install, but it told me it needs python 2.6. However, that's the version I
have already. When I do python, I see:

Python 2.6.1 (r261:67515, Jun 24 2010, 21:47:49)
[GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5646)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

Can you help me figure out how to install it?

Also, is it possible to install it with easy_install? It didn't work when I
tried, giving me:
