[Numpy-discussion] updating NumPy in EPD

Hi NumPy gurus,

I have a slightly weird question.  I would like to install 
the PyCogent python library.  However, this requires NumPy 
1.3 or higher.  I only have NumPy 1.1.1, because I got it as 
part of the Enthought Python Distribution (4.1) back in 2008.

Now, when I download & install a new version of NumPy, the 
install seems to work.  However, the PyCogent installer can 
still only see the NumPy 1.1.1 version.

Any advice on what I might do to fix this?

I would just update my version of EPD, which is
where my NumPy came from -- however, Enthought only has
available for academic download a version of EPD that works
on OS X 10.5 or later, and my Mac is a 10.4.11 and I'd
rather not completely reinstall the OS just to get one
little library to work.

Any help much appreciated!!
