[SciPy-user] Some progress installing on Mac OSX / Fink
Thu, 11 Sep 2003 20:16:54 -0400
I'm trying to install scipy on OSX using the Fink installer.
As noted earlier, I had to find and manually download pdflib-4.0.3 because
pdflib.com is delivering 5.x.x.
Fink stops at one point, reporting a checksum problem with pdflib. I just
said go ahead anyway.
With that, lots of compiling takes place.
I'm stuck now because Fink is trying to install numeric-atlas, but it finds
already installed both numeric and numeric-py22. Fink stops here, refusing
to go beyond this conflict. Since I have numeric-py22 already, is there
some way to force Fink to ignore this step?
I'm not sure how/why two versions of numeric are registered as installed.
(Recall I'm new at the Mac.) In the actual filestructure, only numeric-py22
exists. (that is, /sw/lib/python22/site-packages) I've installed several
packages; apparantly numeric was installed twice. Only one seems to exist,
yet both are registered with Fink as being installed. I tried
sudo fink remove numeric
sudo fink remove numeric-py22
after which both packages are no longer registered, *and* I mangled the name
of the numeric directory and numeric.pth in the hopes that the scipy
installation would see nothing installed, and install numeric-atlas. But
no, it still finds numeric-py22 as installed, and quits. (I also have
MacPython installed ... but shouldn't that be entirely independent?)
So once again, I beseech thee for help.
