Hi folks-

Thanks for all the help with the Solaris install; it finally

Not content with leaving well enough alone (i.e. with
Numeric 20.1.0), I tried installing with Numeric-21.0b1.
The build and install goes fine, but "import scipy" fails with:

>>> import scipy
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "/home/laplace/lib/python2.2/site-packages/scipy/__init__.py", line 41, in ?
    from handy import *
  File "/home/laplace/lib/python2.2/site-packages/scipy/handy.py", line 1, in ?
    import Numeric
  File "/home/laplace/lib/python2.2/site-packages/Numeric/Numeric.py", line 124, in ?
    arrayrange = multiarray.arange
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'arange'

Does this reflect an incompatibility with more recent versions
of Numeric?  If so, what is the latest version that is compatible
with SciPy 0.1?
