The "Distutils" used to make the installation does not yet have an
uninstall, but the distutils discussion group has been discussing this
topic. I don't follow the discussion so I can't tell you where they are,
just that I have skipped over a lot of messages on the topic.

Meantime go to your Python root, lib/python20/site-packages, and delete
Numeric.pth, and the directory Numeric. Also directories MA and FFT if you
installed those. Yeah, I know, you didn't want me to tell you that.

First of all, I'm not at all familiar with python or numeric python.
I need Numeric for testing a software package on my Linux PC.

I only needed to try the sofware package, so I wanted to temporarily install
How do I do that? I mean, there seems not to be a script for uninstall!?!

The scripts in 17.3.0 only allow me to install. Why is the uninstall

Or am I overlooking something?


PS: don't tell me to go in such and such directory and delete such and such
That would exactly be what scripts are supposed to do.
