> Thank you for responses. I managed to install numpy and scipy with BLAS and LAPACK libraries. Now I am going to install ATLAS and again python2.5.1, numpy and scipy. I will follow two ways. The first one is to build it from *.tar.gz sources. The second one is to build it from *.src.rpm as you recommended.  I think that the closer one *.src.rpm from http://software.opensuse.org/download/home:/ashigabou to CentOS 5.0 is Fedoea 6

I can easily remove them when installation fails. In case of *.src.rmp I will have to study the installation and removing procedure first. I am going to start with rpmbuild. If you have some suggestions let me know.

I can try to generate rpm for this distribution if you want (CentOS is 
not supported by the Suse build system, but Suse Linux enterprise is).

If you manage to generate rpms for Centos, I would appreciate to get the 
modifications you had to do (if any, but I think they do not work out of 
the box for Centos).
