Where did you install atlas ? What does ldd says about lapack_lite.so module ?

More likely, your problem is that you install atlas into a directory
not known to the OS. You should either install atlas in a directory
known to it, or use things like LD_LIBRARY_PATH. For example, if you
installed atlas in $HOME/local/lib:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/local/lib python -c "import numpy"
