[SciPy-user] Help! More instances of "AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'eig'"

I am trying to install SciPy.0.3.x on a beowulf cluster frontend running Redhat 7.x (I don't know the exact version). I install everything in a separate top dir, using a prebuilt ATLAS package for Linux.AthlonSSE1 and the gnu f77 compiler. Installing python 2.3.4, Numeric 23-6 and f2py2e goes smoothly; all tests run ok. Installing SciPy runs fine, with few serious error messages. However, when I import scipy in python (which is also not a problem) and try to run the tests, 15 tests fail with the error message

 "AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'eig'"

A web search led me to andrewl's message (link: http://www.scipy.net/pipermail/scipy-user/2004-October/003486.html ). Running 

>python setup.py clean --all; rm -rf build/

does nothing for me however (not even when I run it, or any combination of it, for each separate package after each reinstall). The clean script seems to run fine, but for the error message 

>'build/bdist.linux-i686' does not exist -- can't clean it 
>'build/scripts-2.3' does not exist -- can't clean it

I have no idea whether this is relevant or not. Has anyone else had this problem? What log outputs should I submit to help solve the problem? As I am entirely new to the world of python, I would be very grateful for literal and simplified replies.

Sincerely, Erik McNellis
