I take it you mean http://www.scipy.org/Installing_SciPy/Linux ?

The instructions on that page are actually for Ubuntu Dapper (6.06). I
have just modified the web page to make this more clear. For Ubuntu Edgy
(6.10) and beyond, a rather recent numpy/scipy/matplotlib triumvirate is
already in the standard Ubuntu universe repository. De-install my
packages and use the standard repository.

If, with the official universe package, you still get bugs such as this
(which indicates a rather grave packaging error/misconfiguration) the
place to file a report is at launchpad.net. Of course, we'd be
interested here at the scipy-user mailing list in any deeper or more
subtle bugs and may be able to provide further support in any event.
