Well, I removed the f2py2e directory and reinstalled numpy as you
suggested. Now, I still use the -lgfortran option and the --f90exec
option, but am no longer getting the "NUMERIC" version.

Thank you for the help. You have been more than patient with me :-)

Now all I have to do is get my laptop to also behave the same way.
f2py creates the .pyf file fine, but balks at the following command.

thayes@seneca$ f2py -c --f90exec=/usr/bin/gfortran matsolve2.pyf
-lgfortran matsolve.f90

However, I can save this for another day.....

Thanks again,
