Hi. I'm trying to install IPython on CentOS 6.3 running Python 2.7.3. I've
installed the 2.7.3 from source - the OS distribution comes with 2.6.6. I've
also installed numpy and scipy from source.

To install IPython, I did " python2.7 setup.py install". It runs OK, but
then fails one test with:

FAIL: IPython.utils.tests.test_path.test_not_writable_ipdir
Traceback (most recent call last):

    ipdir = path.get_ipython_dir()

    return False

. . .

ERROR - 1 out of 8 test groups failed.

You may wish to rerun this one individually, with:

The above was run as root. I tried running the individual test as an
unprivileged user, but it still fails.

I appreciate any suggestions.
