I would like to use splrep() splev() for matplotlib plot smoothing 
similar to gnuplot smoothing 
but the install fails.  I followed the instructions for FC5 on 

sudo yum install numpy
  Installed: numpy.i386 0:0.9.8-1.fc5
  Dependency Installed: atlas.i386 0:3.6.0-10.fc5
sudo yum install lapack-devel blas-devel
  Installed: blas-devel.i386 0:3.0-37.fc5 lapack-devel.i386 0:3.0-37.fc5
  Dependency Installed: blas.i386 0:3.0-37.fc5 lapack.i386 0:3.0-37.fc5

Downloaded scipy-0.5.1
cd /usr/src/scipy-0.5.1
python setup.py install, and...
"/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/numpy/distutils/misc_util.py", line 
655, in _get_configuration_from_setup_py
    ('.py', 'U', 1))
  File "Lib/ndimage/setup.py", line 3, in ?
    from numpy.numarray import get_numarray_include_dirs

Then in installed numarray-1.5.2, but that went into site-packages/numarray.
Then I tried a symlink from numpy/numarray -> ../numarry, but more errors

Any help?
