Thanks Ben.

Also I did not specified any of BLAS, LAPACK, ATLAS libraries, do we need these libraries for numpy?

I simply used following command to build:
  python setup.py build
  python setup.py install —prefix=/usr/local

If above commands are sufficient, than I hope same steps to build will work on Mac OSX?

Best Regards,
Prakash Joshi

Hi All,

I built numpy 1.6.2 on linux 64 bit and installed numpy in site-packages,  It pass all the test cases of numpy, but I am not sure if this is good build; As I did not specified any fortran compiler while setup, also I do not have fortran compiler on my machine.


NumPy does not need Fortran for its build.  SciPy, however, does.
