Interesting, I am also running debian sarge and linalg works fine.

Hmm, is stow causing problems here ?

Anyway, I am using the scipy debian packages from
deb http://deb-scipy.alioth.debian.org/apt/ ./

As you seem to have a couple of python things at non-standard debian
locations I would be interested in the full
output of python test2.py (off-list mail to me would be great).
Note that I just made a few more changes
to both pynotes.py and test2.py, see

Many thanks - Gary Ruben mailed some interesting results
for Windows - still some work to be done, but I am optimistic!

Best, Arnd
