[SciPy-user] installation on fedora core 4

It is good to know it works on Gentoo.  That is a distro I would consider.

I don't think I need to build ATLAS, blas, and lapack from source now
that I have them from yum.

I just don't know what to do with the error I am getting trying to
build scipy from source.
